I am going to leave it in. For the companion quiz, "Top 10 Tallest U.S. States on the Map", I didn't want people to be think that it was the states with the tallest people.

Lived there for 18 1/2 years and it surprised me that California is wide. If you take the distance from furthest east to furthest west them oh, it is wide, a lot of that is sea though, if you draw it as a rectangle. Of course forgot the Florida panhandle, duh. Virginia surprised me too. And I forgot that Idaho goes around the corner of Montana so it then impinges on Wyoming's width. Very interesting angle on the States' geography.

I didn't even try typing it in. I didn't realize the curve made it so wide.

Just typing in Nebraska gives me flashbacks of the last time I had to drive those 450+ miles through there. I'm still traumatized!

I enjoy driving through Nebraska. What traumatized me was driving through southern Kansas in the 1960s in a car with no a/c. We were either passing an oil well and smelling the fumes, passing a feed lot with hundreds of cows who added to the aroma, or else we were driving endlessly with nothing in sight but an occasional dusty small town. Thank goodness I-70 was completed. Driving through northern Kansas was better. At least there were some hills and trees to break the monotony. (Apologies to Kansans, but I'm just not a flatland kind of girl.)
