I guess there is not much else to see in North Dakota, so why not a giant cow! :)

Maybe that is why I have so few postcards from there Kristin, there is nothing else to see ;-)

Whoa, wait a sec. There's lots to see in North Dakota, but then again, I guess it depends on what a person likes to see. :)
