If you ever find yourself exploring the expanses of North Dakota, it’s common knowledge to keep an eye out for the unexpected presence of mountain lions in Williston or the freezing cold that could turn an egg solid in Parshall. But an often overlooked factor to be mindful of is the state’s danger zones.
You heard right! North Dakota, like any other region, has its share of risky spots. Some attribute this to the icy temperatures sparking tempers, others point fingers at the need for more quality job opportunities, while some chalk it up to simple human nature.

Lastly, it’s a smart move to consult our list before making any major life decisions.
