High Point, New Jersey

Boundary Peak, Nevada

Mount Sunflower, Kansas

the highest points in their respective states

each of which is nearly on the boundary of a neighboring state

I find
it remarkable
that half of the
high points in states
that have neighboring states
(twenty-four of forty-eight, to
be exact,) are within ten miles of the
boundary of at least one of those neighbors.
