I am famous for producing lots of maple syrup. I'm famous for a horse derby and rolling green hills. Mount Rushmore is one of my more popular tourist sites. The Chesapeake Bay divides much of my land area. Dorothy and Toto are a couple famous "residents." I am home to over 10,000 lakes. I'm home to the Grand Canyon. I am spread over many islands. The Rio Grande separates my southern border from Mexico. My name is from the Choctaw words "okla" & "homme." I am home to the Liberty Bell. I am the largest state in land size. I am home to Pikes Peak, one of the highest peaks in the Rockies. Most of Yellowstone National Park is in my north region. My nickname is the Golden State. My nickname is the Sunshine State. I have one very large salty lake. I am surrounded by four Great Lakes. Three of my major lakes are Lake Tahoe, Lake Mead and Lake Mohave. I'm home to the Ozarks, Gateway Arch, and Silver Dollar City. I am home to the Carlsbad Caverns National Park. The widest river in the USA shares my name.
