I'd choose Wyoming. I lived there when I was a teenager and while I disliked it then (you just don't move a 14 year old across the country and expect them to be happy,) it was SO gorgeous. Winter wasn't so bad. I'd have to live on the road between Cody and the east gate of Yellowstone, though, on the north fork of the Shoshone River. It's the most beautiful place in the world.

That being said, I have never been to Alabama. Perhaps I'd love it there. I truly despise hot, humid weather, so Alabama has that strike against it. But I can't exactly judge because I haven't been there.

My first instinct was to vote 'Bama for college football, affordable low taxed housing, and southern hospitality.

But I went with Wyoming for the naturescapes and proximity to other cities out West.

Alabama for sure.
- Has actual cities like Birmingham, Mobile or Huntsville
- Has beaches
- Access to New Orleans, Biloxi, Houston and rest of gulf coast
- Better food
- Better history
- More people
- Southern accents

This is a very weird question. First of all, have any of you driven across the desolate icy roads of eastern Wyoming in the middle of the winter? I have, a number of times. There's just a small area of Wyoming that seems attractive and that's the western part, especially around Yellowstone Park, The Tetons and a few other places. These two states couldn't be more different and it makes me wonder what the purpose of the question is. Alabama does have some pretty areas, it's very green, but of course it's also hot and humid as others have mentioned. If I had to spend my summers in Alabama and my winters in Wyoming that would be as close to hell as I can imagine.

I think this question was just a random state matched together with another random state. Like comparing Maine to Nebraska.
