No, the horizon does not need to be straightened. The landscape (and the road, a little) was tilted just like that.
I recently spent 3 days in eastern Oregon, visiting John Day Fossil Beds National Monument. I’ve written a story about my stay that will be published in the National Parks Traveler sometime in April.
As for eastern Oregon, itself, I can tell you the scenery is stunning and the geology is amazing, as you can see in this image.
