The Southernmost Point of the U.S.   November 27, 2016

The southernmost point of the mainland contiguous United States (that's accessible) is here at Flamingo in Everglades National Park.  

O.K., this is where things get a little tricky.  The actual southernmost point of the mainland contiguous United States is a place called Cape Sable, which is 11 miles west and about 1 mile south of here, but you need a boat to get there.  The point shown here is as far south as you can feasibly walk on the mainland United States.  There is a trail that extends to the west of here, towards Cape Sable, but the National Park rangers told me that it was flooded and full of mud, and that you had to wear a full netting suit because there were tons of mosquitoes.  Oh, they also said that you also had to watch out for pythons.  

So considering all that, I decided to call it good and make this the southernmost point of the U.S.  Yes, I'm a wimp -- but I'm a living wimp.  And as you can see by the map below, I suppose I could've gotten a little farther south if I wanted to walk over by the campground, but I thought this point at the Picnic Area provided a much better view!
