Made it safely to Vancouver, WA via I-80 through Wyoming. The WY-phenotype is, in my view, very akin to the Iranian landscape of Mohsen Makhmalbaf, one of the greatest film directors of all time. See Gabbeh (1996) for an amazing story within a story set in the Iranian countryside following a group of nomads around. The main character is a gabbeh rug, figured as a beautiful woman. See Ikea for the gabbeh rugs that are all the rage right now.
See southern Wyoming for more antelope that you can count, all looking just like they do on Iranian rugs. Who would have thought?
