but aside from a few cute Elizabethan houses
Just think how much worse we have it over here, W/A.
At least we have the Grand Canyon and much other natural splendor.
I guess so, though I'd say the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone etc are all pretty big at least
s. North Wales is nice but probably not much to write home about compared to the Grand Canyon.
Plus you have Graceland!
Edit: Talking about American natural spleandour, I don't know if anyone here is that much into painting, but 18th/19th century American landscape painting is just about my all-time favourite aside from 18th/19th century Mexican landscape painting. One of the big names was this guy, Thomas Cole:
They had an exhibition of works by him, Albert Bierstadt and others at the Tate here in London a few years back and this stuff just blew my nuts off, so to speak. Absolutely breathtaking.
