North Dakota--a few pix
Some of it, around rivers, gets a little variation in elevation, plus trees. It's quite green (and rather buggy). The poison ivy is pretty and green too, but don't touch!
ND has been and is currently being settled by Scandinavians. You can hear Norwegian spoken in Walmart any day of the week. Here's a church out at Icelandic State Park:
Sights around Grand Forks, one of the larger cities in the state. North Dakotans are mostly Lutheran, but there are some large Catholic churches around town, like St. Mary and St. Michael's:
The Ralph Engelstad stadium, the temple to the other religion in town (ie hockey):
Downtown Grand Forks, including a monument marking various flood stages:
And two interesting buildings. The first has something to do with river flood control, but the nice design plus the non-access makes me think of CENTRAL Central Intelligence on Camazotz. (A Wrinkle in Time) The polka dot house supposedly happened because the owners got ticked off at the city and painted it that way for spite. The building next door, incidentally, is called the Stern Building.
