Geography again. This should be easy.

Ignore Alaska. Without Alaska, in what state is the northernmost point in the United States?

Post your answer as a comment below and not on Facebook.

Update and answer

And thanks to the many (1) who submitted an answer to last week’s Quiz Question. Nobody got it right, although it is something covered in all high school geography courses.

No, despite a casual glance at a U.S. map, the northern  tip of Maine is not the northern tip of the lower 48. That distinction, at 49.38 and some change north latitude, lies with the northern tip of Minnesota. See the map from  Google Maps:

How would you like to live in that bit of the United States? Dude, if you don’t have a passport, you are going to need a boat to get to Kansas City.
