Wait a minute, depends on what ya mean by redeeming qualities. At least in Kansas as well as many surrounding states, one can see for miles and miles and as far as the eye can see.
Back around here, you`re pinned in by trees and more trees. Going down the highways around here, you`re surrounded by corridors of pines and other trees that pretty much block your view and/or ability to see anything beyond about a quarter mile and that`s only when you reach a break in the trees/forests due to someone with a farm and/or field near the road.
You might gather that I prefer the ability to see more than the tree line on both sides of the road................for mile after mile after mile.
