In an attempt to find the most remote piece of wilderness in the lower 48 states, Stephen Von Worley of the blog Weather Sealed created this visualization that represents distances to the nearest McDonald's.

Between the tiny Dakotan hamlets of Meadow and Glad Valley lies the McFarthest Spot: 107 miles distant from the nearest McDonald's, as the crow flies, and 145 miles by car!
