Oklahoma can be much prettier than people give it credit for!

I took some photos of the Driftless a few years ago. These are from around Winona, Minnesota. In general the area reminds me a lot of upstate NY, the old river towns along the Mississippi are the same vintage as a lot of central NY villages.

Love the Driftless. Galena, IL is my favorite town in the area—so cute!

Ozarks look absolutely gorgeous. Some google images for anyone who cares to see.

There is nothing better than hiking in the eastern mountain ranges.

The eastern edge of the Ozarks in Missouri, near Ironton and Arcadia, is the St. Francis Mountains— a separate ancient volcanic region with some of the oldest exposed rocks in US. This is the Precambrian igneous basement of the Ozarks and the highest elevation in the state. This is certainly some of the prettiest scenery in Missouri.

Speaking of the Ozarks, parts of southern Illinois look like they're sort-of eastern extensions of the Ozarks. You get a little bit of scenery like this:
