The USGS is looking for your suggestions on which places in Oklahoma are the “most remote” in the US, and it’s calling for your ideas.
The USGS lists a lot of mountains in Oklahoma, but some of them have different elevation ranges.
So the map above shows the elevation of the tallest peak in each state.
The list of USGS remote mountains includes:• Ojibwe Mountains, located in southeastern Oklahoma.
The state’s highest peak is 5,400 feet (1,000 meters) tall.• Oklahoma Mountains, which stretch from the Kansas border in Oklahoma to the Gulf of Mexico in Texas.• Okemos Mountains, a peak at the southern edge of the Gulf, in the middle of the state.• Big Bend, which lies in the heart of the oil-rich region.• Eagle Peak, which stands at the mouth of the Missouri River in the eastern part of the US.• Summit, located on the summit of the Mount Rushmore national monument in Arizona.• Black Hills, which includes a peak in Wyoming.• Red River Gorge, which spans about 3,000 acres (1.4 square kilometers) in Wyoming and reaches a depth of 1,800 feet (500 meters) in the southern part of Montana.
The map is an online feature that users can create and share, and will run through Tuesday.
If you have an idea, you can submit it here.
