That is like 3% of the state?

The rest of the state is more or less a desert wasteland.

Sorry mate, that's subjective. Taller doesn't immediately = prettier.

The entire state is covered with chains of mountains, some of which are very impressive and underrated, like Wheeler Peak, Mt Wilson, and Mummy Mountain. A far larger percentage of Nevada is scenic compared to South Dakota, which only has the Black Hills in the southwestern section, and the Badlands in the northern section.

Indiana has the most boring terrain out of the state's mentioned IMO.

What is ugly is in the eye of the beholder I guess, because most of the state's mentioned are rather beautiful to me.

Delaware doesn't belong on this list. For being the second smallest state in area (LA County is bigger than us), there is a great deal of variation througout the state. There's dense, woodland forests in the north, rolling hills with estates (Chateau Country), and even cliffs (Alapocas Park) believe it or not. The south is even greener, has some of the best, most pristine beaches in the continental US, and even has the northernmost wetlands in the country (Trap Pond State Park). Throw in cutesy towns with Main Streets like Newark and colonial architecture like New Castle, along with skyscrapers, rowhouses and 19th century architecture in Wilmington, and the state is quite varied in appearance.

I'll be traveling to Nevada next month so I will hold off until then to give my opinion. But of the other states mentioned I would vote Delaware, since I'm partial to states that have access to a coastline. Still I do agree that Indiana often doesn't get the credit it deserves. I have driven through Indiana several times and found the scenery to be quite charming.

Why does Indiana seems like the Mississippi of the Midwest to you?

Would you also say that Mississippi seems like the Indiana of the Deep South?
