As much as I love the Mtns there, I wish they would have taken some time to add in foothills to the east. The way the mountains pop out of the plains just isn't authentic. I understand there are always budget issues, but still. Its sort of like how all public buildings are now made plain and cheap without thought of beauty- all in the name of money. I hear that the new waterproof glue they have developed extends the service cycle and is really helping to offset the labor costs of remajestifcation there.
