Steve likes to live at the base of mountains--with a summit as backdrop and open space sweeping away before him. He grew up in Colorado, where the Rockies meet the Great Plains. He lived at the southern end of the Rockies, where the Sangre de Cristo Mountains give way to the desert at Santa Fe. He lives now along the Wasatch Front, where the Rockies meet the Great Basin.
The Shining Rockies will always hover over his days, it seems.
