Won't matter what the tick marks are; the scale difference will be too
great to see the smaller range on the same axis as the larger...

I see two alternatives--

a) semilogx()

b) use separate x-axes (essentially plotyy excepting it would be plotxx)
See the documentation for samples on 'using multiple axes'
