The USA: A Sense of Place The lower 48 of the USA is a land of contrasts, physical, cultural, and political. From desert to sub- tropical, high alpine to temperate rain forest, rolling plain to towering mountains, and rugged wilderness to sprawling megacities; this complex landscape harbours ethnic enclaves, cosmopolitan neighbourhoods rural communities, art communes, and exclusive societies. In the four months we spent travelling in the US we hardly scratched the surface of this complex nation, but we gained the impression of a people welcoming to visitors, polarized in their political and social views, and profoundly influenced by their landscapes. The following images and comments reflect our personal experiences.  A page may have buttons labeled “Anecdote” and “Location”. The Anecdote button will describe a personal experience or provide additional information about the subject matter of the page, the location  button will display a map showing our route in purple and the the route segment covered by the page in white.
