    Having looked into land values in rural Idaho and western Montana over the last ten years, I haven’t seen the same thing happen here in the Northern Rockies. Prices for good rural land with conservation amenities still seem to be climbing, although vacant lots and homes within towns and cities have been dropping in assessed value.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
