America the Beautiful

While it’s easy to think of America as being devoid of all the beauty, culture, and history that the rest of the world shares, it’d be incorrect to state that America doesn’t have its fair share of natural beauty. No, we don’t have any landmarks where ancient battles were fought and kingdoms were won and lost, but we do have plenty of landscapes worth traveling cross-country or globally to see. Below is a collection of photographs that exhibit the best natural landscapes America has to offer. *If you’re feeling particularly patriotic, here’s a link to “America The Beautiful” to play in the background while you scroll through these photographs.
