Valley Region

The Valley Region of North Dakota was created when prehistoric glaciers crushed and leveled the land, then melted into a 100,000 square mile glacial lake (Lake Agassiz). When the lake disappeared, draining into Hudson Bay, what remained was a valley with soil rich in organic matter and minerals

This is the Red River Valley, where towering trees shelter wheat-laden farmlands.

Newly done.
