I understand that when most of America thinks of Idaho, they probably think of Iowa with potatoes instead of corn, when it really couldn't be further from the truth.

The panhandle is quite mountainous and forested (even desertish around Lewiston), and the southern section contains mountains, deserts, plains, valleys, forests, etc.

Actually Iowa is very hilly and rather steep in the eastern part of the state (especially the NE corner) with bluffs, rivers, and woods. While it doesn't compared to the mountainous regions of ID or MT and other mountainous states, Iowa isn't all flat cornfields either. You should come visit. I think you'd be pleasantly surprised like I was when I moved from CA to IA.

I know, the Driftless in particular is a place I want to visit. I've been to every state bordering Iowa, but not Iowa itself.

Funny, that'll be me with Arkansas soon. As soon as I enter Missouri in about a week, I would have visited all of Arkansas' neighbours but not Arkansas lol

Minneapolis, MN and surrounding suburbs. Maybe when I'm older, a small town in south central MN.

I think something like Fort Collins, CO. Outdoor culture, natural beauty, great beer scene, within a day's drive of family in the Midwest...I've always loved college towns, etc.
