blight on the landscape

Hello, everyone,
I have another puzzling piece of dialogue from 100 Bullets comics. In this story, agent Graves is taking his colleague named Dizzy on a mission. He asks her whether she ever was to Colorado. "No," Dizzy replies. "It’s beautiful country... a regular blight on the landscape," says agent Graves.
To me, "blight on the landscape" is something ugly, an eysore, which does not really match the "beautiful country" description. Could there be another meaning? How would you interpret this?
