Minimum Mountain Height
Country: United States
Date: September 2007
What is the minimum height of a mountain?
Yes, apparently it is 2000 feet above mean sea level. In fact near
Poteau, Oklahoma, there is what is billed as the World's Highest Hill,
at an elevation of 1999 feet.
Its name is Cavanal Hill and you can Google it to see a picture. There
is some debate as to the true height of the hill (mountain?),however.
I do know that, in the 1980's an oil company actually drilled a well on
top of the "hill". It was a very deep dry hole.
