What state is it?


Answer: Arkansas

Part of the Ozarks, the Boston Mountains spread over Northern Arkansas, while the Oachita Mountains sweep west. People from all over the world come to Arkansas for these beauties, and also to "take the cure" at resorts such as Hot Springs, Mammoth Spring, and Eureka Springs, where 4,000-year-old water percolates and bubbles up from the earth at temperatures of 95-147 degrees Fahrenheit. Water so hot you could cook rice in it. Arkansas rice, that is. Rice fields all over Arkansas, mostly east of Little Rock, make the state the leading rice producer in the country. Rice is nice, but diamonds are forever. Crater of Diamonds State Park--the only public-access diamond field--opened in 1972 with a generous "Finder's Keeper's" policy. Since then, tourists have found over 11,000 diamonds, including the 16.37 carat Amarillo Starlight, discovered by a visiting Texan.
