Never forgetting the great state of Alaska, lets keep this in the lower 48 states.
The Northernmost Point in the continuous 48 States is: Lake of the Woods County, Minnesota. Citing again from Wikipedia:
Lake of the Woods County is a county located in the U.S. state of Minnesota. As of the 2010 census, the population was 4,045. Its county seat is Baudette. The county contains the Northwest Angle, the northernmost point of the Lower 48 States, and includes the U.S. portion of Lake of the Woods, shared with Canada. The county also includes the enclave of Elm Point. Since Alaska has no counties, Lake of the Woods is the northernmost county in the United States.
While looking for a more inspiring photo for the post, I did run across this note: Northern most point: Between Bear and Harrison Creeks 49°22′35″N 95°08′56″W
Still looking for a great photo and ran across a Real Estate site LandsofMinnesota.com and currently there is an 80 acre parcel in the county for sale, for $56,000!Appears to be more for hunting that housing. Great pic of a cabin so I hope you catch it before they take down the listing.
