On the same day we drove through Exmoor, we also drove through Cheddar Gorge, England’s largest gorge.
It takes only thirty or so minutes to drive the full length of Cheddar Gorge.

The great bluffs of the Upper Mississippi are far more beautiful and far more dramatic than Cheddar Gorge—and, of course, the great gorges of the American West are incomparable, on an entirely different scale of beauty and wonder than Cheddar Gorge.
