Another Roadside Distraction

In the East, up to somewhere in Louisiana, it's very common to have a thick row of trees lining the highway. The traveler doesn't get any sense of what the surrounding landscape looks like until they take an offramp and see farms or marshes or a city or hills or the shore.

You can tell you're starting to hit the West when the trees fall away and the vistas open up. In Texas you can see for miles.
