I wonder what it costs to live the simple life.

Probably more than we can afford.

What I want to know is why it is even possible to build luxury homes there. Much of this area is National Forest, and it intrudes on spectacular views. If you look at the large size of this picture, you can see it on the top of the peak:

National forests are usually not one contiguous area, but a patchwork, so people with enough money can buy a piece of private land surrounded by forest service land. The Black Hills is a prime example of that. People want to have a special place to enjoy the beauty, and thus destroy the scenery for everyone. Yep, just like in the picture with the fog bank. I didn't notice the house until I looked at the large size photo, and it sure does detract from the scene.

Hey, those Silicon Valley CEO's have rights too. There you go with that socialist assumption that the little folk deserve something.

I don't believe anyone "deserves" anything, though generally we get what we deserve whether or not we like the outcome. But as far as building things, for those who are more deserving than most of the rest of us...it wouldn't be so bad, if they built something pleasing to look at. Something that adds, instead of detracts, from the landscape. You know, like a Chinese pagoda, a quaint chalet, or a castle, but not something that looks like a cheap 50's motel for a house like the one in your photos here.
