North: Alaska; South: Hawaii; West: Alaska; East: Alaska -- it crosses the date line into east longitudes. Of the mainland 48 states, the distinctions belong to: North: Minnesota; South: Florida; West: California; East: Maine. Some people feel that Maine is also northernmost of the 48, but at latitude 47o 27' it falls about 115 miles short of Minnesota's 49o 23' northern reach.
