Introduction and Purpose

Welcome to the Twelve Mile Circle.  This site will be 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.

This is a companion to my travel pages where I detail some of my actual trips to Strange Geography locations.  But I found there are so many others that I want to see someday and may never the chance, and you deserve to learn about those now instead of waiting and hoping that I have an opportunity to conduct a site visit.
