Mount Hood in Oregon is on the 45th, and is on just about every tourist pamphlet and advertisement around here and got no play. -- Too bad

I too live on the 45th. To a retired Land Surveyor it is a thing to wake up closer to the Equator and eat breakfast closer to the North Pole. Yes the south part of my house is less than 45 degrees and the North part is greater than 45 degrees.

I live on the 45th. in Michigan.  We have a beautiful state and it's a great place to live.

Although the winters can be a bit much.  54 inches of snow in February and wound up with over 150 inches this winter.  

 

Get out the skis, snowmobiles, ice fishing equipment etc.

Then summer and golf, etc.  surrounded by the Great Lakes so many beautiful spots to visit here.
