I like landscape behind loco. Is it like some standard representation of hinterland of the USA?
This scene is in the Missouri River “valley”, about 50 miles east of Kansas City. Rather flat in the valley, with low, rolling clay hills along each side. Lots of good farmland, where corn and soybeans are the dominant crops, with some winter wheat mixed in. Hot and humid in the summer and continental polar in the winter. Nice Spring and Autumn weather, though. We have occasional tornadoes in the region, but I’ve never actually seen one myself, in person.
But to answer your question, yes, it is a fairly common type of scenery in the central US.
Thanks for asking 🙂!
@Maersk.146 thanks for the answer 🙂
