Minnesota's Northwest Angle, an American geographic oddity


When does a borderline confuse things rather than clearly define them? When it's the border our Lee Cowan has been inspecting:
The sound of distant deer hunters is about all you'll hear along one remote tree-lined corridor -- a stretch of the longest land border between two countries.
On one side, Canada. On the other, the U.S.
But this lonely spot is also the gateway to an American geographic oddity: Minnesota's Northwest Angle, where one resident said, "Most people up here are adventurous, or crazy, or both!"
On a map it looks as if someone put a substantial part of Minnesota in Canada by mistake.
