I would take the prairie over the mountains any day. Great slabs of granite leave me cold.

I don't mind people in california, Hawaii or Vermont thinking their state is beautiful and preferring their states. I do get irritated when people from scenic areas aren't able to appreciate varied forms of beauty.

This.
So many people here think that swamps are ugly nasty places but they can be tranquil and quite beautiful.

Default Georgia

I'm going to have to go with my beautiful home state of Georgia. Here is a few reasons why:

Tallulah Gorge

Providence Canyon

Stone Mountain

Savannah

Little St. Simons Island

Amicalola Falls

Okefenokee Swamp

Cloudland Canyon

Lake Chatuge in Hiawassee, GA

Sorry for all the pictures but, I love my state. But, I, just like others, think every state has its beauties.

My vote goes to Hawaii; Hawaii is breathtaking. I also like Pennsylvania, driving through the I-80 in PA is very therapeutic, seeing all the giant mountains, ultra-hilly roads, barns, open-space and farms is a huge change from where I live.

I think the Northeast USA, Midwest and Pacific Northwest resemble each other very closely in terms of geography. When I see pics, the only notable differences were SOMETIMES the type of tree's that are there.

I've always preferred the mountains. That is just one of the numerous reasons why I left Kansas City.

IMO, a state should have lots of variation to qualify.

New Mexico offers that and much more and thus takes my vote

PICS:
