Actually, it starts with vicious bashing and ends with us defending our state.

That is a nice article, it is about time we get some positive press from the media

I usually like to give smartass replies, but I don't know why natural wonders would be bashed. That's one thing I love about this country, the natural landscape is gorgeous.

Kind of makes sense since these are UNDERRATED natural wonders and TX doesn't get much credit for its natural wonders/beauty. With a state that big there are bound to be some nice natural landscapes that not many know about.

Discuss ALL of them, and it won't turn into a Texas bashing thread which I would have to close since this isn't the Texas room (hint).

I'm not sure why cliff dwellings built by humans are a "natural wonder." Wonderous, yes, but manmade.

The state with the most underrated natural wonders is New York. With the influence of that big city, everything else is overlooked. Not that I have a big problem with that.

Way to go Texas, though. In fact, I don't live too far from Palo Duro Canyon. I'll have to check it out.

Those places all look pretty great, but with the exception of 1 in California, all of these are in the South or SouthWest. I'm pretty sure the Northeast, Midwest and Northwest have plenty of underrated natural wonders they could have featured for people living nearby.

Grrr. Why did they have to mention Topsail Hill? We go there all the time in the summer because it isn't crowded, and I don't want more people to know about it.
