From the high peaks of the Sierras to the rolling crest of the Blue Ridge, from the forest to the desert, the diversity of the U.S. must be experienced to be understood. Unfortunately, very few people have the time to visit every place. I have been to several sites around the country and have pictures from Tennessee, Arizona, California, Virginia and more. As I visit more places, I will be adding more to this page and expanding existing pages. As always, I am making plenty of spelling errors, so please mail me with corrections or any other comments you may have.

Some of these pages contain inline JPEG images. If your browser does not support inline JPEG images, get one that does. The latest versions of Mosaic and Netscape both do, as well as most browsers for other online services. JPEG's usually look better if you spawn an external viewer to look at them. If you need help with helper applications, IUMA has a page of helpers for Windows, Unix, and Macintosh. These photos are Copyright G. Edward Johnson.
