Head to Idaho. You wouldn't think of Oregon as having vast areas of nothingness, well outside of Bend on Rt 20 looks just like it would in Arizona, but with more shrubs and grass and the road going on for miles. Just past Drewsey, OR, we've gained an hour, Mountain ST. Now you get this sense of drepression knowing you are headed back to the east coast.
Right before we got into Idaho, you start seeing the farms with acres of onions, hay, potatoes, wheat, corn and whatever else they grow. Ontario, OR is the onion capital and you smell them before you see them. Also where Ore-Ida factory is. We are now in Mountain Home, ID where they have an AFB, I hope they don't do flights at night.
