Map Puzzler #2


While we are on the topic of strange map facts, here's an unexpected tidbit. Let's say you get in a plane in St Louis, Missouri and fly due north 540 miles--and then land. What state are you in? The answer may surprise you.... it's Michigan. Really. Follow the purple line northward to see for yourself....

  2. According to Google, it's Wisconsin. Just short of Michigan by a hair.
