What's something cool about your state?
What's up folks? I just thought it would be cool and educational to hear what different forum members think is cool and unique about their particular state or country. It doesn't have to be shocking or uber-captivating, just what you think is cool. God (yours) made a beautiful earth and we've got a fairly big chunk of it!
