The truckers call it "the big country" because you can look out and see for miles and you’ll realize that it’s really big. You can’t get these kind of views back East. Notice there are no trees, That’s because there isn’t much water out here. This area is in Arizona along I-40 and is east of the Rockies. It was once referred to as the Great American Desert and is now called the Great Plains. Personally, I think everyone needs to drive around America for awhile. It’s a very interesting place.
