Mt. Diablo is Northern California's Base and Meridian. It's all measured from there!

Barrenjoey Headland, the most northerly point of Sydney If you look carefully you can see a green & white Coot hiding behind Lion Island, they're everywhere those Coots.

Gotta be Lookout Mountain at the foot of Moccasin Bend on the Tennessee River. Coots have been posing for pictures there for 150 years.
