According to what I've been told, one state (Alaska) has land which is considered the easternmost, northernmost, and westernnmost in all of the USA. What are the three points that allows it to claim this, if it is indeed true, and how to get there?
Alaska is indeed the easternmost, northernmost, and westernmost in all of the USA. General assumption of one state being both easternmost & westernmost in a country is that the state being spanning across the country. But it's not the case with Alaska, below is the explanation from the website World Atlas
I'm searching to get these three points & their co-ordinates. I'll update once I get them.
Update: Co-ordinates of three extreme points as per Wiki -
Depends of course on your definition.
If you look at the Aleutian Islands parts of the chain is located in Eastern Hemisphere so technically if you can consider them the eastern most part of the United States, but since you normally go west to get there and considering their proximity to the antimeridian it crosses Amchitka pass they could be considered the westernmost part of the US as well.
