Ok, that's all.
Those are some beautiful pictures - a lot of them look like parts of Wisconsin.

I-57 through central Illinois is the absolute flattest thing I've ever seen. But I also LIKE it. Flatlands are some of my favorite places to drive through. I absolutely love the farmland of central Illinois, especially in May when everything is green and it contrasts with the red barns and silver grain bins.

But it's so flat that it makes MICHIGAN look hilly

A pretty typical picture of Michigan. Flat by most standards, but not Illinois flat.

You can't really call Michigan flat if you're counting the UP.

Anything West of the Mississippi River, to me is considered a 'flat state'! Too many tornados and bad weather to suit my taste. I am a River Valley person, who loves the Ohio River (I live two stone throws from it), and wouldnt live in a flat state to satisfy anyone. I love them thar hills and wouldnt give them up for the World. Green trees all around, and animals running amok LOL!

May the LORD Bless each of you.

I wish you well...

Jesse

West of the Mississippi River includes the highest mountains in the continental United States (the Rockies). Plus Arkansas, which is just barely west of the Mississippi River, has the Ozarks. There are some flat states west of the Mississippi, but nowhere near all of them are flat.

EVERY state West of the Mississippi has flat areas, and a majority of them are the flattest in the nation. Kansas-flat as a board in 90% of the state. Oklahoma? Flat as a board in most of the state (gorgeous in others). New Mexico? NE NM is flat as flat can get. Parts of south-central NM are laughably flat, too (even though mountains are visible in the far distance). Eastern CO is incredibly flat, as is most of Nebraska. Parts of ND and SD are table-top flat, same for Iowa. Areas of NV are so flat and long that youd swear theyd never end. Parts of MN are flat as flat can be as well. Parts of MT and ID are also flat, as is parts of Eastern WA and OR. Minus Hill Country and West Texas, Texas is as flat as they come.

Have you travelled at all? Just curious? The ONLY state that I can think of that is completely all flat is Florida. Every other state in the nation has flat areas and hilly/mountainous areas.

Here is a pic just North of metro Des Moines.


This next one is in grundy county just west of Waterloo... more of the rolling hill look to it.
Where's the hills? Am I missing something?

There are rolling hills in western Iowa, at least along I-80 when I've driven through there. I can confirm it!
