Confusion in the Union

Summer is a great time for exploring, whether the journeys are actual or imaginary. This summer I plan to post about fun, educational, and inspiring adventures.

First stop, the United States… If you have visited any of the sites listed here or have done much traveling of your own, then you probably know where each state is located. But what if the states themselves decided to travel? That would make summer vacations full of the unexpected!

The Scrambled States of America by Laurie Keller relates this imaginary, humorous tale, sharing both the pros and cons of the states’ locations.

Imagine if your state belonged somewhere else? How would this change things like your weather or your vacation plans?
