If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

I prefer the mountains of my homeland (western Montana), but I also enjoy flat, arid environments-- think New Mexico, and parts of Eastern Montana. However, for the latter, temperature doesn't matter- a flat, dry piece of desert is just as attractive to me as a flat, cold, windy piece of tundra.

Are they not the same if you ignore the temperature?

I like glaciers, high alpine meadows, and redwood forests.

I also like rocky cliffs, but only solid rocky cliffs. I've learned through bitter experience that rotten rocky cliffs and I don't get along very well. :/

Anything with rocks. Preferably spikey mountainous rocks, but I'll take most localities as long as there are interesting rocks. Also, a couple of lakes wouldn't go amiss. Which is why me <3 the Lake District [Smile]

I have to say New Zealand is one of the most beautiful places in the world, such as in lord of the rings. And beaches, you can never go to too many beaches

I like mountain country myself, probably because my ancestors lived in places like this...

That is hard. I guess I like getting to see new nature I haven't seen is my favourite.
I must admit that for day to day living in nature that I am not as big on flat. I've been in mountains too long.

Actually, one of the most fantabulous places oi've ever been to is Lochnagar in the Eastern Highlands. Wandering around them parts brings back memories - be sure to take thick clothing if ye ever go, though. It don't 'alf get brass monkeys, ennit. [Smile]

I love visiting the Giant Sequoia groves in the Sierra Nevadas. It's such a humbling experience to be in the presence of those trees.

I completely agree on forests and beaches.

What's really refreshing is a nice forested area in the mountains.

I'm from the foothills of the Blueridge mountains, in South Carolina, but it's been years since the last time I've been able to make it back there. I was little, so I would go with my family to hike up the mountains. . . one of them had a waterfall [Big Grin] .

The beach is certainly fun. The was a nice beach I used to go to in Florida, St. Andrew's beach. It had an area that was protected by jetties. It was a cirular area that was alost completely cut off from the rest of the ocean.

It had no waves, the water was crystal clear, and the sand was soft and sugar white.

It's been a while since I've been there, so I'm not sure what it looks like anymore. There have been a few bad hurricanes since the last time I've been.
