CRAP !!
Maryland is about 250 miles long and about 100 miles wide at its greatest
extremities. However at one point it narrows to less than two miles where it
forms its western panhandle.
The Maryland-West Virginia border along this stretch hugs the Potomac River
as it courses along rugged Appalachian valleys. The Maryland-Pennsylvania
demarcation is the Mason-Dixon Line, surveyed between 1763 and 1767 to
settle a colonial era land dispute. The two nearly squeeze Maryland in half
at Hancock.
Hancock has been a transportation hub since the early days of European
settlement. Settlers reached here as early as the 1730ís when it was the
farthest fringe of western civilization.

So..... I should have said "High" at it's narrowest point ??
"Narrow" and "Wide" are a Couple, methinks ...
Methinks "Vertical" would be the third dimension, and I was only working with two...
