Boise does. The parks and trees in the foreground and the downtown skyline with the dramatic foothills in the background which rise to the top of the forested Boise Ridge. It is like a work of art in any season.

Except for the reference to Boise Ridge, you could have just as well been describing the Charleston skyline. Their natural settings are quite similar.

The "Ridge" mentioned is somewhat more dramatic in Boise, going from ~2500 ft to ~7600 ft, comapred to ~600 ft to maybe about ~1500 ft ??? in Charleston.
