Contest #23 Answer

This one was a bit more tricky. Especially if you don’t live in North America. The answer is Point Roberts, Washington, aka the appendix of America. When the original boundry between the US and Canada was established at the 49th parallel, there was a stub of land below the 49th parallel which wasn’t connected to the rest of the US. If you look at the satellite image, you can see a horizontal line which is the border between the US and Canada. There are also bits of the US you can’t get to via land up in the Lake of the Woods in Minnesota. I once drove up there just to see what it was like.

Getting this one correct:

  • Brian T
  • Ben Bayer
  • ACG
  • Karel
  • Dave Rennie
  • Matt Manolides
  • Ron Schott
