    Thought this might be an interesting thread.

    I came upon this scene on the 30th in Gage, Oklahoma:

    Gravel road in central Nebraska, from last year:

    This shot I got while passing through Montana last year on my way from ND to WY for 6/12 is still one of my favorites. IMG_20170610_192035.jpg

    A few more from the archives. These two from Chase, Kansas:

    A classic trap for chase vehicles of all types and sizes, in the Texas Panhandle:

    Already posted this in my 06/01/18 chase report but figured I would post here as well - this was in Nebraska, somewhere south of Sargent if I remember correctly

    These are great! Exploring all these views is a big part of the chase for me.

    Cheyenne Wells, Colorado
    One of the endless streams of hazy tree & water tower silhouettes on the horizon that gradually resolves into all the little places where the local PD like to see if you're going to slow to 35 in time.

    Route 8 — North of Athol, Kansas
    Straight roads draped across green hills—another favorite.

    Route 3 — South of Lavina, Montana
    And the Cliff Swallows losing their minds and swarming like bees at river crossings.

    What a cool thread! The scenes which present themselves across the Plains are, in my mind, very much part and parcel of the whole experience of chasing - and I try to spend a bit more time taking them in and getting some pictures.

    From this year - looking into the yonder from a rest area along US87 between Clayton and Raton, NM (I really love that stretch!):

    No trip around the Plains would be complete without some kind of local 'interest' - this, the VW Slug Bug Ranch, Conway, Texas.

    Damn, those are awesome snaps. Where I live sucks for that type of photography.
