The Western states are huge. Oregon is the ninth biggest, but even we can drive 10 hours in one direction and still be in the same state. My Wife drove back from Yakima Washington today and sent me a couple snapshots of the Columbia Basin/Gorge transition...

That first picture looks like she's driving down Maryhill to the Biggs bridge. My daughter lives in White Salmon. The gorge is beautiful especially in the spring when the wild flowers are in bloom.
You are exactly right.

And I love this drive, from the gorge into the basin. The expansive scenery never ends, and could not be imagined without seeing it.

That is one big river and beautiful country.
What I like about the West is that you can actually see the countryside while driving. We have spent a lot of time in the East and most of the time all you see are trees. For example driving on the interstate from Raleigh NC to DC all you see are trees same when going to Kitty Hawk NC. They call the West Big Sky for a reason.

Springtime in Texas and winter in the North :)
