My Take on the Movie
If you have wanted to visit the southwest and wondered what you may see and care to visit, this DVD is an excellent overview of beautiful destinations.
It is done with photography and a narrator. Each state has it's own section of the DVD so you can stop it at any time or even skip to the state you wanted to know more about.
I watched the entire DVD and learned about some new sights that I am now interested in visiting in the future.
You will learn about the cities, natural features like lakes and mountains, the animals and plants , size and number of people living in the state, and more.
