GEOGRAPHY IN THE NEWS:
The tallest mountain in the contiguous U.S. is Mt. Whitney, east of Fresno in California's Sierra Nevada Mountains. The next three tallest mountains in the contiguous U.S. are southwest of Denver in Colorado's Rocky Mountains: Mt. Elbert, Mt. Massive, and Mt. Harvard. Yesterday, my kids climbed Mt. Harvard, making them, for a short while, probably the highest people in the contiguous U.S. (The photo is of my oldest at the summit, showing that even on Mt. Harvard, "it's all about the U.")
