This site is dedicated to the many unusual places that can be found on maps that just don’t seem to make sense.  State highpoints, non-contiguous boundaries, latitude/longitude confluences, and other trivial geographic facts are all fair game here.

Still curious to know more? I’ve developed a pseudo-FAQ that answers a lot of the common questions.

  1. Authors Tony Opporsdorff and Buzz Shabert are completing a guide (Best Nature Sites along Route 1: Brunswick to Belfast) to be published late in 2010. They have identified 40 locations that offer the transient and resident alike an opportunity to get out of the car or house and see a little of what’s
    out there. Every site includes a map, directions, guidelines, but more importantly, a focus on a plant or animal species (dragonflies, mushrooms, birds, eels, alewives, galls) or subject of interest (pollination, glaciation, invasive plants, toxic pollutants…). They are working with land trusts and with a number of experts who have submitted short essays that we will insert as sidebars.

    I am helping the authors look for am image of harbor seals. I noticed you have a perfect image on your website at https://www.howderfamily.com/blog/tag/breakwater/. Would you be willing to allow one time use in this publication? The
    budget is small and at this point mostly spoken for. I am wondering if you might be willing to provide the images gratis, as the book will benefit many non-profit organizations. Of course credit would be given- perhaps an opportunity for publicizing your work.

    Please let me know if you think this is a possibility and we’ll go from there.

    With thanks,
