From a personal view:
Alabama, where I found my little dog cheeky living under a chicken coop.
Alaska, one of only two states I have not been to.
Arizona, Beautiful red rocks and where I feel like I'm in a roadrunner cartoon.
Arkansas, A sea of green in a region of brown
California, where I caught my first glimpse of Mt. Shasta from 300 miles away. I measured it. Must have been the clearest day in history.
Connecticut, Seemed to me t be a suburb of NY city
Delaware, Camping with the grandchildren at beautiful cape Henlopen.
Florida, hanging out with my sister in law on the beach at her home in Palm beach.
Georgia, Sitting on Forest Gumps bench thinking about going and getting some more of that wonderful Low country cooking.
Hawaii, the other state I have not been to.
Idaho, beautiful drive through the mountains.
Indiana. The mosr beautiful highways in Indianapolis.
Iowa, The Iowa 80 the biggest truckstop on earth and an entire countryside that looks perfectly kept.
Kansas, Flat brown and boring.
Kentucky, the Corvette museum at Bowling Green and the most amazing horse farms ever around Versailles that the locals call ver sales. LOL
Louisiana, Cajun food YA, saving Cheeky from an alligator infested awamp when he decided to take a swim.
Maine, getting a load of paper to pickup in Bucksport and hooray for that because it always means a lobster dinner downtown.
Maryland, sleeping on the Mason Dixon line in the South lookin across the road at the Yankees in Pa.
Massachusetts, bad traffic very time we're there.
Michigan, Driving through the UP eating pasties.
Minnesota, man, I thought Canada had a lot of beavers!!! very little tiny creek here has a few. See that little river we just crossed, it's the freakin Mississippi!!!
Missouri, election night 2008 spent in a truck stop watching O win. You would have thought it was the end of the world from the reaction of ALL the people in there.
Montana, I mean what can you say??? This place has it all. Amazing, beautiful, free, rich, poor, HUGE. 600 miles across and almost 500 north to south.
Nebraska, corn, corn and more corn. has a great capital art deco building.
Nevada, why was this freakin desert ever settled. Prickly looking place, bone dry but some good Mexican food around.
New Hampshire, I'm too freakin old to be climbing this Mt. Washington again. Ohh my aching knees.
New Jersey, good thing I vacationed in Atlantic City in Sept. It's pretty much wrecked now, very sad for the people.
New Mexico, Nice and cool way up high for this far south.
New York, 5 minutes away from where I'm sitting.
North Carolina, Where I would live in the mountains if I were to move to the USA.
North Dakota, breadbasket of the world, amazing scenes of huge fields of bright yellow canola, sky blue flax and sunflowers following the sun all day. Looks like Saskatchewan around here!!

I gotta go, finnish later.

Ohio, looks like southern Ontario to me!

Oklahoma, any Okies from Muskogee around these parts?

Oregon, I love this state. Love,love love it. I love staying at the Timberline lodge and climbing up to the top of Mt. Hood.
I love staying at a hotel in Portland and just wandering around downtown for a couple of days. I love the wild Pacific shore and the deserted beaches. I love gathering up stones polished by the wind driven sand. Ah, Oregon, we don't have anything like you in this country.

Pennsylvania, A truely great state. It has everything. I love going to Pittsburg for the weekend and seeing the Pens thash the Leafs once again. Someday we will beat them. Maybe not in my lifetime though.
The capital in Harrisburg isjust an amazing building. I could never get tired of touring it.

Rhode Island, Very tiny, I drove right through it one time without even realizing I had been there. LOL

South Carolina. Great beaches and great food.

South Dakota, Lewis and Clark and Rockey racoon.
Mt Rushmore and the Missouri river.

Tennessee, Country music, Nashville skyline and whiskey.

Texas, too hot for me, cowboys and pickups. Good TexMex food everywhere.

Utah, Great salt lake, Salt Lake city, lots and lots of great red rock country.

Vermont, Maple surup and wonderful green mountains.

Virginia, The cradle of America, Charlottesville, George Washington Jefferson, Madison, Monroe. Mountains, tide water, the Delmarva peninsula. This state has it all.

Washington. Another state I love. every one should drive up to the Johnston observatory to view Mt. St. Helens at least once in their lives. It's just beyond description. The Olympic peninsula is worth a few weeks of anyones life.
Sitting on my sisters boat in Point Roberts. A truely weird little corner of the USA. You can't get to it by land without going through Canada.

West Virginia,Bridge day at the new river gorge. Awesome bidge, awesome people. Truely,"The mountain state".

Wisconsin,"The farmer in the Dell" Cheese, dairy products and very pretty cows.

Wyoming. Big winds almost all the time, very cold. I was in Wyoming talking to an oldtimer. I asked him if it was alway cold there. He replied that "We usually get some warm weather between the end of June and the begining of July.

IN conclusion. The USA is one awesome awesome country. There is beauty and wonder all over the place. The country is truely blessed and a person could not see it all in fifty lifetimes.
