Wtf, type of question is this?

Of course the western-most US State soil is Hawaii, and the eastern-point is in Maine (I'm ignoring American Soil in other countries that form embassies or US territories).

Re: 2 tricky geo questions

and it's some place in Washington state that is the most western (if you exclude Alaska and Hawaii)
