Each state has its own beauty, as well as its own problems, I guess.

@IreneVincent That is true since Louisiana is known as Sportsmen's Paradise.

I live in Minnesota. What I sort of like and sort of hate is we have such intense seasons here. Winter, spring, fall and summer are all very defined. Winters can be 30 below and summers can be 100 and humid. We also have lots of beautiful state parks - plenty of camping to be done, rivers and lakes to canoe and kayak, trails to hike! But of course that is normally done in the summer time. A cool state.
