Marine1: Missouri doesn't have dirt. It has clay. And it sucks to dig in.
Cubicle Jockey: I assume most of the soils from New England consisted primarily of fist-sized rocks.
Torion!: Did not know states have official soils.
Precision Boobery: I don't get his Colorado quote; it looks brown like the others, while OK is the reddest by far.
Mandapants: Soils can vary widely from county to county, or even within a county.
AiryAnne: Meh, you can't say Texas can be represented by one soil type. At almost 270,000 square miles we have a few major soil types:Blackland Soil (east central Texas)Sandy Loam (Piney Woods)Sand (Post Oak Savannah)Yellow Clay (The Edward's Plateau)Alluvial Soil (Western Gulf Coastal)I'll bet a few other states can't be represented by one type either.
Spindle: I'd like to know how the person determined which soil type to use for the whole state, did they go to the state capital and dig in the first yard they came to?
The Downfall: As a life-long Illinois resident, I must ask why the soil isn't black? Because typical Illinois soil is pretty damn black.
Longtime Lurker: "Michigan sent two soils, so Gregor blended them together."I know people who make US state maps like to have color continuity between the UP and LP, but seriously, you have two bit land masses to use for your two soils. Seems Kinda obvious.
