Clearly you've never been to Europe. Don't tell us what our countries look like, I think we should know.
All right, Matias, there are impressive geological formations to see in Europe, just like in the States--but look at your first image, the one of the Alps. That is what I imagine much of European "nature" to be like: the mountains are there, but so is the paved road right up to the base. Vast tracks of land untouched except for foot trails through them simply do not exist in the Old World at near the quantities that they do in the American West.
