Ferry Avenue & Immigration Street Looking northwest from Eastport, Idaho, U.S., toward Kingsgate, British Columbia, Canada.
The maroon truck on the right is seen crossing the International Boundary into Canada at the border station, obscured by the white building. The utility pole just to the right of the truck is in British Columbia.
The brown building is the Eastport Post Office, which shares space with United Parcel Service. The gray building further north is the Idaho Hotel.
The borderline between Idaho and British Columbia is 45 miles long. It makes up the shortest land section of the border between the two nations.
Second Street West Looking east from a parking lot of a customs firm just north of the U.S./Canada border in Coutts, Alberta. The chain-link fence separates the two countries. The area between the fence and the parking spaces serves as the buffer zone of the borderline. (See the view looking west from this point.)
Sweet Grass, Montana, is south of this point. (Here is a view from about a block south of the fence.) It’s an incorporated community located in Tooles County whose biggest landmark is the borderline and terminus of Interstate 15.
This border station is unusual in that both Canadian and American officials work from the same facility.
Fenwick Towne Village Road Looking southeast from Fenwick Island, Delaware, into Ocean City, Maryland. The wooden fence on the left side of the photograph marks the borderline, with the dirt road in Delaware, and the portable toilets and Econolodge Ocean Block Hotel in Maryland. The Atlantic Ocean is approximately 500 feet away. (Google Maps)
