In the couple of days I’ve spent traveling around these three towns, I’ve found the rolling drive between places to be quite calming. Peggy at Kiowa Gallery said I would. “This is a healing place,” she says, “because people have time.” From Alpine, I tune into KRTS-FM:93.5, the region’s community station, letting the midday classical hour play sound track to the passing miles of sage brush, desert willow, and limestone rises.
