A track from Moxy Früvous
' concert album Live Noise
, in which the band gives the audience
a geography quiz
The question is: Of the highest points of each of the 50 United States, which is the lowest?
The answer accepted during the concert was Delaware (442ft at Ebright Azimuth). This is wrong -- Florida's highest point, Britton Hill (on the Panhandle, near Lakewood, at 345ft), is the lowest highest point in the US. Delaware is #2, and would be #3 if Washington DC became a state (Fort Reno, 429ft).
The Fruvous FAQ points out that:
- The question was based on a Trivial Pursuit card;
- According to the Moxy Früvous FAQ, what Delaware actually has is the lowest mean elevation;
- The nation with the Lowest Highest Point is Maldives (q.v.).
