Going to Extremes

Highest elevation on Earth: Mount Everest – 8,850 m (29,035 ft) Lowest elevation on Earth: Dead Sea shore – −424 m (−1,391 ft) Hrm, well we’re not going to summit Mount Everest for our wedding, and we’re certainly not going to the dead world of biblical history.  How about North America?
