The magic of Ranier is that it's always there but mostly invisible due to clouds but when it appears one always feels blessed.

Ontario is 693 km (431 mi) wide and 1,730 km (1,075 mi) long yet only has 12.5 million people; most in southern south Ontario.
You can find cactus growing in the south and polar bears in the north.
My with likes to say "We live in gods country" at the base of the Bruce Peninsula and this is still only southern Ontario.

Lots of beauty to be found everywhere across this great continent.

While I just love the rugged beauty of our Rocky Mountains, the red rock of Southern Utah is great, the mountains and sea of British Columbia, Washington and Oregon are beautiful too. All of my camping has been in Western Canada, and the North West US, and heck, a guy could spend the rest of his life exploring there, and never see it all, but upon retirement I look forward to seeing all the other grand places you all have listed in your respective provinces/states.

I'm originally from Washington and it is a truly horrible horrible place, no one should ever go there. LOL! For your protection I'm taking down the names and numbers of all those people who are trying to say otherwise. Shhhhhhhhh!

Since no one else will probably speak up and claim it I have been living in Nevada for the past 15 years. We have worthy tourist destinations in Pyramid Lake, 1/2 of Lake Tahoe and Virginia City up north. In the middle of the state we have a whole lot of hills, sand, snakes, scorpions, ghost towns, and bordello's. Not much to see in the South besides the big dam, disappearing Lake Mead, and let me think, oh yeah Las Vegas. Please come to Las Vegas and bring lots of money, you might go home wealthy hehehehehahahaha!

Nobody has mentioned that Michigan has more lighthouses and more golf courses than any other state. The U.P. (Mi talk for upper peninsula) has the Porcupine Mountains (called the Porkies here) and I have "heard" that Mi has more lakes than Minnesota. Have not verified that.

Vermont is picture post card New England. Lots of state parks, less than $20/night. Memorial day to Labor day for the most part. The "tourist" routes are route 100 north to south and routes 4 and 9 east to west. The Lake Champlain valley is on the western side of the state and the Connecticut River valley on the east. The Green Mountains run north to south between them. At the top of the state is the Northeast Kingdom. My suggestion, skip Ben and Jerry's, buy a Delorme Vermont Atlas and Gazetteer and explore the back roads. If you like rolling hills dotted with cows come sooner rather than later. There are less than a thousand farms left in the state.

Quite frankly, Vermont is just a nice place to be . Raz

Michigan also has some islands with their own post offices. Mackinac, Drummond, Beaver, Harsens. If more I don't know about them.

Wisconsin:

We share many of the natural amenities--lakes, rivers, dunes, hunting, water skiing, birding, fishing, paddling, forests, trails--with our neighbors MI and MN.....except a border with Canada....contrary to what many people think

Central and Northern WI (my favorite along with MI's U.P.) offers much for the "a-typical foodie". Good portions, value, stick to your ribs comfort food is easiest to find and traditional WI.

Drinks--Beer, beer and more beer. Tours and tasting. hand muddled old fashioneds. The bloody Mary's here made a convert out of me ---I hate tomato juice. Hot buttered rum and Tom & Jerry's are found around the holidays....and, yes, hand made (no premix bottle of blah). Finally, Moscow Mules served in copper mugs. Hmmm? I'm getting thirsty

We do Friday night fish fry here....often standing room only at the best kept secret spots. Ask a local where to go. It's often a supper club (yes, we still have them) or a bar/restaurant. Bar/restaurants are more restaurant than bar before 9 or 10 pm so no worries about dining with kids there.

Other foods: cheese curds. fresh (visit a dairy on your trip and you can get them squeaky fresh and still a little warm) or try them hand battered and deep fried at any number of the fairs, music festivals, food festivals and carnivals we have here. Camping is a popular part of the music festivals too! Oh yeah. We have cheese here too! Tons of it! So there are cows everywhere. Lol!

We have a lot of German in our blood here so brats n kraut are common. You'll occasionally find other German inspired foods too- Wiener schnitzel, German potato salad, beets, etc

We're the home of Frank Lloyd Wright (further south near our capital Madison). Madison is a typical foodie locale. House on the Rock is also in

Harley Davidson calls WI home (Milwaukee to the south and Tomahawk to the north). Organized rides are common.

Our roads are beautiful and in great condition and our water is clean and accessible to the public ....as a civil engineer I'm happy for the investment our state has made in these areas :-)

Bowling, curling, horseback riding, and horse camping are popular in my area. Wausau also hosts international national kayak races.

Door County (peninsula on Lake MI known for wine tasting and cherries) and the Apostle Islands come to mind for great natural beauty.

Skiing (not Colorado style but decent), x country skiing, snow shoeing, snowmobiling, ice fishing, ATVing easily accessible.

Whew! I figured I'd leave a just few sentences tops! This was a good exercise in why I love the Midwest. Come visit us.

Oh. And how can I forget the water park capital of the world? WI Dells ---water slides, go carts, hotels, fudge, magic shows, water ski shows, river tours, etc. Did I mention fudge??? You could probably find 4 million tshirts with clever sayings too :-)

Indian casinos are all over too if you like that.

Ok...I think I'm finally done
