Heartland by kkart Heartland by kkart
After a day of storm chasing I had to take a pause and just get this shot. It speaks volumes about the eastern plains of Colorado and how they run on for what seem forever. Out here you can see everything as far as your eye can see. Vast open huge spaces with huge skies. Here, the severe thunderstorms were far out in the distance as the light of the evening painted the rural and country landscape in deep rich colors. It's so utterly quiet out here, I didn't hear anything except the sounds of Meadowlarks. Didn't see another car for nearly 30 minutes. I imagine life out here can be pretty lonely but dang it sure is beautiful!

I drove through from ND>montana>wyoming>colorado>new mexico>texas
There's so many fields like this but i think that montana was the prettiest, the part of colorado we drove there was really dead and dry, but when we were in the mountains it was amazing o:
This is a great shot<3 Shows how flat it is, but even when you see a picture of you, you can never fully understand just how quite and flat it is until you experience it in real life. This picture is probably one of the closest i can see to the feeling of the flat lands XD

It really is beautiful out here.

Where was this taken? Chances I lived due south of it back in my La Junta days.
