Stunningly beautiful

I'm only sorry it was a trail of tears for drought refugees.

What a Stretch

Would we have loved a stretch of road like this in the late '70s to run our very used and tired muscle cars bought during our high school years. Living in the Boston area even back then there wasn't much running room to open up on.

Refugees?

What do they mean by refugees? From where? Dust Bowl maybe?
