True. I remember always thinking places like Iowa and Nebraska to be vast open wastelands of nothing but they might as well be Manhattan or The Rockies compared to Eastern CO.

You could be right....it's been a while. You know why that MAY be true? You are anticipating the Rockies most of the way across Colorado before you see them, and Colorado is BIG. So you are waiting in anticipation for what seems like forever.

No, eastern CO is one of the worst. I-70 across Kansas is actually pleasant and attractive, it's just a bit long and the very western part near CO is the worst of it. I think most people just group the entire drive from KC to Denver as "Kansas". I know the locals call the eastern suburbs of Denver "Kansas" because it's so flat and barren. The reality is that there are so many worse stretches of interstate than KS, like just about any interstate in Indiana, Texas, Illinois, Oklahoma, Nebraska etc.

Ohio to Co on I-70 you will see classic midwestern landscape all the way to the CO line. Lots of agriculture, alot of flat open countryside. Some of the cities you will pass are interesting and worth stoping at. INdianap[olis is nice, and get some BBQ in KC while you are there.

I-70 between Topeka and east of Denver is the most boring stretch of road in the country. You almost hope for a tornado or start hankering to see the giant prairie dog and six-legged cow just to break up the monotony.
