In my experience, New England has more small scale beauty, while the west has more large scale beauty. The west is more dramatic with huge mountains, big wide open spaces, and sprawling vistas, but when you get up close and personal, there isn't as much going on compared to the east (with the exception of parts of the PNW). You have big brown fields of grass, mountain trails full of dead pine needles, dirt, and rocks. Occasionally wildflowers.

The northeast is bursting with life. Depending upon what part you are in, that could be more nature or urban life. In my yard I see deer, rabbits, raccoon, birds, squirrels, etc. I can barely see my neighbors through the dense leaves in the spring/summer. Everything is green. I have many reasons for wanting to leave the northeast, but the natural beauty is not one of them.

You be the judge...I'm sure that other NE states have similar videos about them. This one just happen to cross my FB feed today.

Very nice video.

Connecticut is not one of our more exciting states, it is often very quiet compared to other East coast states. But it sure is a pretty state.

That's great and all. But the first paragraph couldn't be further from the truth.

Not raggin' on the northeast, as I agree it's beautiful, but there is plenty of small-scale yet interesting life in the west. Hell, after rainy years even Death Valley, the epitome of a desolate environment, sees massive wildflower blooms of all different colors. Wild flowers are found everywhere in the west, from the foothills in LA to the deserts to the Sierra Nevada. They don't "occasionally" show up.
