Howdy,

Besides the North Pole there are an infinite number of points along a
Latitude that is 1 mile North of the Latitude whose circumference is 1
mile,
or 1/2 mile, or ... 1/n mile (n = non-zero positive integer).

Good Luck,

Herb Schulz

Of course that latitude must be near the South Pole for the 1-mile version.
A 1 mile circumference latitude is only on the order of .3 miles from a
pole. ;-)
