Anne’s Quiz #33

US Geography

My parents love to travel and made a point of taking their children to all 50 states before we graduated from high school. It was quite an adventure. We drove for most of the project, including Alaska in 1969, but had to fly to Hawaii in 1972. Actually seeing the land is perhaps the best way to really appreciate the vastness and diversity of our country.
