What I’m really asking is this:
How many U.S. states are separated into two disconnected pieces by land that isn’t part of the state and/or a body of water other than a river. And let’s say islands don’t count as pieces.
Until today, I would have said the only two were my current home of Michigan and my home state of Virginia. But I just learned that Minnesota also qualifies (note the northernmost tip). Are there any others?
