You might want to hedge your bets with "Nine of these peaks- more than in any other state- have a prominence of over 5,000 feet" by adding an asterisk or caveat for Alaska. It's cold and far away but I think they still consider themselves a state. ;-) And of course they have more Ultras.
Thanks Eric. I'd overlooked that every resource I used referred to the 48 states. I've corrected the text.
Thanks for that... appreciate it.
