Response to highpoint of Kauai and other wonders of America - - new US postage stamps!


This list is interesting, John. Thanks for posting it.

There were some things that I had not known.

For example, I thought the fastest bird in the U.S. was the frigate bird, found in Hawaii. And I thought the largest glacier was Alaska's Malaspina Glacier and the deepest canyon was the Snake River Canyon in Idaho. I was interested to read about the Molokai cliffs and the speed of the pronghorn.

I guess there's always more amazing stuff to learn about the natural world and this wonderful nation of ours.
