(Uskings.us) There are few places in America where the elevation change takes you high enough and the surrounding terrain is low enough where you can look out and see for miles. Because of the gradual curvature of the earth and using high-powered binoculars, you can see hundreds of miles away. One of the places in America where you can see a considerable amount of states is the Four Corners Monument where you can stand in Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, and Colorado at the same time. Another is in the northeast; you can also see up to five states from the top of Mt. Greylock in Massachusetts. States visible include New York, Vermont, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. While each of these destinations provides incredible views, the place where you can view the most states at once is Lookout Mountain, Georgia.
