Random geography trivia

The Thames River has the most crossings of any river in the world. It has 200 bridges, 27 tunnels, six public ferries, one cable car link, and one ford along its 215-mile course.

The small town of Johnsonville in the SW corner of North Carolina is closer to 7 other state capitals than it is to its own state capital of Raleigh.

I love Geography, so I decided to look for a couple of minutes, and see that the far Southwestern part of Virginia is closer to NINE state Capitals!
