Some kind of recognition for the Black Hills would have been nice.
If they wanted to show the bison, they should have used a picture of the roundup. I would argue that borders on stunning. LOL

They are probably just trying to get the point across - New Jersey has a long beautiful shoreline and Vermont has colorful and beautiful fall foliage. Could have had a better presentation though.
Agree. Simply googling "fall in Vermont" or something along those lines brings up stunning pics, surely TWC could have found something!

Delaware's photo is depressing.

This whole thing is pretty bemusing, though still a fun exercise. The ones they picked for Illinois and Rhode Island aren't even natural wonders! The lack of specificity for some states is kind of a cop out, too: "the Ozarks" for Arkansas, "the bayous" for Louisiana, "the shore" for New Jersey, etc. Monument Valley in Utah is a little when you consider that the really famous iconic parts/views of Monument Valley are in Arizona and it's not like Utah is particularly lacking in other spectacular natural wonders.

Then just some quibbles based solely on personal preference: I'd have gone Painted Rocks in Michigan, especially since they already went sand dunes for Indiana, Valles Caldera or White Sands in New Mexico, Watkins Glen in New York (though you can't begrudge them Niagara Falls), Starved Rock State Park in Illinois, Hocking Hills in Ohio, Pine Creek Gorge (Grand Canyon of PA) in Pennsylvania, New River Gorge in WV, just to name a few that come to mind.

There's some beautiful countryside up in the Brandywine and Red Clay Creek area in the far north/northwestern part of the state, but I guess just being pretty isn't enough to qualify as a natural "wonder."

Though the world's largest cave is more unique I'd rank several Kentucky places above it if "stunning" is the word.

1. Red River Gorge / Natural Bridge area
2. Big South Fork area (over 100 natural sandstone arches)
3. Cumberland Falls
4. Rockcastle River


Horse farm country and several large lakes are also great.. but man made

Indiana.. I'd take Hoosier National Forest, Brown County Forest, or Clifty Falls over a polluted lake shore with smoke stacks in the distance
