Where am I? - United States Part 47

1. Did you know that on average a light bulb can last under fourteen years?

However located in a fire station in this state there is one that has been burning

for over 100 YEARS (1901) which makes it the world's longest lasting lightbulb.

2. Although found in other parts of the world, this state is home to the most

common place in the world to see watermelon snow. This happens due

to the pigmentation of a particular algae that thrives in freezing water.

3. While most states are named after people or places, this state has

the unique distinction of being named after a fictional imaginary place.

4. With a capacity of 65,000 people, this state is home

to the largest outdoor music venue in the United States.

5. If you enjoy extremes then this state could be for you as its home to both the

highest and lowest point in the 48 states. The elevation ranges from 14,505 ft

(4,421 m) and - 282 ft (- 86 m). Due to being not too far from each other,

every July people attempt a race to run the distance between them.

6. This state is also the only one to host both the Summer and the Winter Olympics.

7. If you need a break from all this then enjoy some of the 1000

museums located in this state (which is the most in any state).

8. If you just feel like observing trees then you will enjoy knowing that this state

is home to the largest, tallest and oldest known in the world. (They are three

separate ones). As of 2019 the tallest is 380.8 ft (116.07 m) tall, the oldest one is

over 4,855 years old and the largest one is 52,500 cubic ft (1,487 cubic meters),

9. This state is home to NINE national parks and 280 state parks which are both the most by any state.

10. This state is home to the world's last manually operated

cable car system which has been active for since 1873.

The correct answer was:

Hope you enjoyed the beautiful pictures and fun facts!

Have a wonderful day!
