Hi - I'm the marketing manager for North Dakota Tourism and yes, I'm extremely biased about this state. I was raised in the ag-rich, Red River Valley. To me, there is nothing more beautiful than black dirt and carpets of green (or gold) as far as the eye can see. In North Dakota you can explore vast grasslands, unexpected forests and Badlands that look like a mini-Grand Canyon. I'm more of the "explore by snowmobile" type than by foot on the Maah Daah Hey. But "hey," you never know where adventure will guide us.
