Trivia Question 3/29/11 – Oh Canada!

USA and Canada BorderWell, March has been U.S. Geography Month for Trivia for no really good reason except I said so. We finish out U.S. Geography month with this:  We all think of Canada as our neighbor to the north, however, there are states, or portions of states, that lie north of the southernmost point of Canada.

QUESTION:

How many states, or portions of states, lie north of the southernmost point of Canada?

ANSWER:

27

EXPLANATION:

Surprisingly, more than half of the states in the U.S. are at least partially north of the southernmost point of Canada.  Canada’s southernmost point is Middle Island in Lake Erie at 41 degrees and 41 minutes north.  There are 27 states or portions of states that are north of this point.

These are the 27 U.S. states at least partly north of the southernmost part of Canada:

Alaska* Maine* New Hampshire* South Dakota*
California Massachusetts New York Utah
Connecticut Michigan* North Dakota* Vermont*
Idaho* Minnesota* Ohio Washington*
Illinois Montana* Oregon* Wisconsin*
Indiana Nebraska Pennsylvania Wyoming
Iowa Nevada Rhode Island

*The 13 states marked with an asterisk are entirely north of Canada’s southernmost point of land.

North of Canada
