As far east as east...
As far west as west...
If north is the future
What name fits me best?



Answer

Alaska.

Alaska has the western-most point in the U.S. (Little Diomede Island), AND the eastern-most point in the United States (Semisopochnoi Island in the Aleutians) This is possible because Alaska straddles the international date line.

Alaska's State motto is: North to the future.
