From a series in the Oregonian about US 26:

“This is where the rubber hits the road.  This to me is what eastern Oregon is all about.  This is where you can picture pioneers slogging through the desert, running low on water and wondering how much longer it will take.  This is a very lonely section of the road before arriving in Vale close to the Idaho border.”  Thomas Boyd.

Or, as I call it:  home.
