World's Tallest Hill

A comment on another post of this blog got me curious about something I've always heard about but didn't really know anything about.

I've always heard that Oklahoma was home to the "world's tallest hill".

I know. That sounds funny.

But, according to Wikipedia,
Cavanal Hill (officially Cavanal Mountain according to the US Geological Survey) located at Poteau, Oklahoma is billed as the tallest hill in the world at 1,999 feet (609 meters), based on the idea that it would be classified as a mountain if it were 2,000 feet or higher.

So, there you have it. Oklahoma: not all flat.
