US states north of Canada

posted by Jason Kottke   May 01, 2014

What’s your best guess without looking: How many US states are at least partially north of the southernmost part of Canada?

(It’s probably way more than you think.)

Ok, I’ll give you two hints…

1. Wyoming is almost *entirely* north of the southernmost point in Canada.

2. Part of a state that borders Mexico is north of the southernmost point in Canada.

One more big hint: more than 25% of US states are entirely north of Canada’s southernmost point.

So, here’s the answer:

States North Of Canada

27 US states, more than half, are at least partially north of Canada’s southernmost point. (via @stevenstrogatz)
