CBS Sunday Morning correspondent Lee Cowan travelled to Northwest Angle, a small Minnesota town that sits above the northern 49th parallel. While this town seems like it should be a part of Canada, it is still very much a part of the United States. While life can be inconvenient as a passport is required to enter or exit the town, those who live there seem to be quite content with their quiet fishing town.
There is a place in Minnesota that has the feel of small town America, but if you want to get to the Northwest Angle, travelers have to leave the U.S. and go through Canada to get there. Lee Cowan explains a geographical quirk along the northern border.
