North Dakota - "Legendary."
Just couldn't believe how flat the country is in North Dakota. Flat prairie land everywhere converted to enormous farms for cropping or ranching. A huge State but only about 700,000 people live in it. Great traveling the roads as you see bison, wolf/coyote (not sure which), deer and elk.

... high snow in dress shoes, actually slid past on of my exits on the interstate!, and the last night of the trip the forecast low was -20 degrees in Grand Forks, ND (it only got down to -10, fortunately). I arrived home very late that Friday night, which was my birthday. Ah, good times.
So anyway, it was interesting to see actually see the ground in North Dakota this time – that was a first for me!
