"I have a different perspective on the mountains here than those who complain," wrote Eve Montgomery. "We moved here from Wichita Falls, Texas, in October. Wichita Falls is one of those places where you can see the storms three counties away and you have a few hills which really are molehills or prairie dog hills.
"I love your mountains here and don't wish for those big mountains where you can only see a small part of the sky. You see, I love the sunrises and sunsets you can still see from Spokane. Yet I look out my window and see mountains, which I love. Also, I don't spend a large amount of time driving down from 8,500 feet just to go to the grocery store like my brother does in Colorado.
"You can drive to the bigger mountains from here if you must.
"We really like Spokane, which is a friendly and welcoming community. You have a variety of great things and people here instead of just mountains. I will always take sunrises and sunsets over high mountains."
