I wouldn't have thought those pictures were taken Anywhere in AZ. thanks for sharing!

Texas is nothing but desert & prairie. Hollywood is so full of BS.

Couldn't be anymore untrue.

A good chunk of the state is highly forested & the rest resides along the Gulf Coast. There are also some tall mountain ranges in Southwest Texas in Big Bend Country & Central Texas is chock full of hills & plateu's with a river running through it all.

I find James Carville's 20-year-old comments about Pennsylvania to be largely false.

Many people think that most of California looks like this:

CA1

When in reality, a much bigger part of the state looks like this:

CA2

Yes, and well over half of Washington is on the dry side of the Cascades and closer to desert or arid plains as well. For Oregon, except for Bend, which is more like a Colorado ski town, most of the central and eastern portion of the state is primarily cowboy country. The Pendleton Roundup is one of the biggest rodeos in the US--and a good chunk of the region feels more like Montana or Wyoming than Portland. There's even summer rodeos in the Willamette Valley just outside of liberal meccas like Portland or Eugene. Portlandia and the common stereotypes are just common to inner Portland in between the West Hills and 82nd Ave. Most of the state is very rural and fairly conservative.

I don't know if there are any stereotypes for Delaware and if there are, I have the feeling that they're all true.

Delaware's stereotype is that the state doesn't have any stereotypes.
