View of Dillon Reservoir and Dillon, CO. Silverthorne sits low to the right. The reservoir is one of the largest in CO providing the main water reserve for Denver. It is so large that a sizeable (for a landlocked state) sailing community resides. The creation and expansion of the reservoir to serve Denver's growing needs forced the submersion of the original town of Dillon, where it can be seen under the west bank. The original road into town now serves as a boat ramp. Many of the ski areas in Summit County surround the reservoir, including Breckenridge, A-basin, Copper, and Keystone.

The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.
The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.
The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.
The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seatle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer.
