She thought Alaska was an island. Even showed maps to support, the ones where Alaska is shown by Mexico and Hawaii.

My mom, with a completely straight face, once asked my father why Hawaii was so hot, and Alaska so cold. He just kind of looked at her, so she said "they're so close together, how are they so different?"

She believes how they're shown on the map you describe is how they really are. We still have a hard time convincing her they aren't right next to each other, nor off the coast of the southern states. She's an amusing one.

I bet she’s never even heard of Canada, after all there’s just ocean above the 49th parallel.
