On Oregon Scenery -- Too Showy, Perhaps?

Poet William Stafford on the natural beauty of Oregon:

In some ways, let me say, the most minimal scenery is my kind of scenery. This is too busy a place. I stand it very well. It doesn't make me nervous. It's just that it's superfluous. Any Kansan knows that Oregon is a little too lavish.

---- from At the Field's End: Interviews with 20 Pacific Northwest Writers, Nicholas O'Connell, ed., p. 235.
