Response to What is the highest peak in North America east of the Rockies?


As I recall, there's a sign in the Visitor Center (or was it in the shelter at the top?) near Harney Peak claiming that it is the highest point east of the Rockies until you go all the way across the ocean to the Pyranees, or something along that line.  And that's the big problem:  you'd have to draw some boundary lines other than longitude/latitude lines to try to force this claim to be true.

I don't know what the real answer would be, since defining the northern and southern boundaries of this region "east of the Rockies" (as well as defining the exact point that marks the eastern boundary of the Rockies) would make all the difference in finding the highest point!
