Where the West was One?

After having recently spent a week in crowded, bustling New York City, this cool gray photo of Highway 20 East of Bend, unfolding through the grey green sage of Central Oregon, evokes a feeling of lonely isolation. There are places still to travel where peace shares the sounds of the western breeze and the ever present tone of your mind tumbling down a quiet road.

Those are some threatening looking clouds and the road looks like it goes on other cars? - lucky you - unless you break down! Great shot for Scenic Sunday. Hi from California!

Another hello from California. Our deserts southwest have many roads like that! Aren't they lovely, though! I went to NYC once...couldn't STAND the people and traffic! I LOVE the west!

That's a very atmospheric picture. I have never been to America but I would love to travel on highways that stretch on forever!
