Yes you're right although I can't imagine your back yard becoming a country. It would have to be at least the size of Nauru.

It was an observation based on a discovery I made, make of it what you will.

As the Mayflower sailed to New England, the sister ship the Seaflower sailed to Old Providence - no guesses in which became the more successful English Puritan colony nevertheless the now UNESCO Seaflower reserve is still stunning with an old school 1950's Caribbean feel.

Nice pics PF.

Mexico is actually pretty diverse too. I imagine China would be another top contender.

Usa is not a Country with different cultures,architecture,gastronomy. and with history very different for very much Centuries as it is happens in Europe.-

USA is almost geographically with dimensions of a Continent built very reciently only for two Centuries by emigrants of from many different origins .-

In its phisical geography can only be compared with India China ,Rusia,Brasil etc that have similar or superior geographical magnitudes -

In my opinion where there is mosaic of phisical human a cultural geography in extraordinary varieties is in Europe.-

That's not really the case, size may help but at least in the case of Russia, Brazil and even India a vastly smaller country like Colombia is more diverse overall.

Finally whilst cultural manifestations tied to the geography enhances the allure, the remit is 'Geographical Diversity'. Also whilst European culture is intricate, hyper-visible and full of depth it's still limited.

Why don't you post about 200 photos and show us?

Lol, this!

This thread has derailed from comparing the extremely diverse US geography with potential contenders to a "Praise my homeland Colombia, the most beautiful, diverse and unique place of the world!". We all know that Colombia has many astounding landscapes, and it is very varied as it happens with mountainous places, especially the ones located at low latitudes, but all the pics are still a narrow window of all the possible natural environments that conform a country, and don't tell everything about that place.

At the end of the day, the US has places like Eureka, CA., Mount Washington, NH., Death Valley, CA., Key West, FL., International Falls, MN., Fresno, CA., Alamosa, CO., Laurel Mountain, OR., and Norman, OK., whereas Colombia is a (thermally) seasonless country. It's like... NEXT!

1. Whose "we"? Most people I would say aren't particularly that aware of Colombia's anything, let alone its varied geology and biomes.

2. What's curious to me its that its 2 Argentines (yourself and marlaver) that have a particular issue with the posts of beautiful landscapes. Yet most US-Americans, Canadians, Europeans and other Latin Americans praise the photos or at least take it on the chin if they think its too much.
Something that should be visually positive becomes a negative. Things must really be tough in Argentina to have that constant psychological pessimism - personally I see beautiful nature and it brings joy wherever its from. Not to mention a possibly new (and cheap) vacation spot for many.

Lighten up. All the best.
