You should accept "Newfoundland" for Newfoundland and Labrador.

I'm surprised at how low the French territory has been guessed, when in the instructions it clearly says "French territory". It baffles me.

Didn't read the fine print - thought it was Nunavut

I'm sure that the French territory is so, well, unknown that few people know about it.

Well, I didn't know what it was, and I guess that can said for many of the others.

I guessed DC first, and I'm not sure that's wrong. Then went skeptically to Nunavut, and was reassured when it didn't work. Took me a couple minutes to remember New France.

I do wonder if DC is in that territory

DC doesn't have anything remotely like mountains, though.

You could have told me not only that it is a French territory, but could have also spelled out every letter except that last one for me and I still would not have gotten it. No idea what or where the place is; I will now look it up, however.

Geez, just Territory as a clue even if you tried Nunavut and the Northwest Territories would leave just one along that whole swath. Hopefully a lot of people googled and learned. Beautiful place and still a major political connection in North America.

Please take Saint Pierre and Miquelon out of this quiz.

Why, because you didn't guess it? And no, I won't remove it.

On Wikipedia, it does say that St. Pierre and Miquelon does touch the Appalachian Mountains, so I think it should be included.

Lived in the mid-south US all my life and never heard of this place. Agree with Halpie, thanks for teaching me something new!

I always thought the Newfoundland area, including Saint Pierre and Miquelon, was more a part of the Canadian Shield than the Appalachian Mountains. I'm not one to argue with Wikipedia, though.

How does St Pierre and Miquelon touch the Appalachian Mountains? They're islands.

Bernard62601 that's exactly what I was thinking. Anyone have an explanation for how St Pierre is part of the Appalachians?

They're geologically in the same mountain range. The Appalachians were formed long ago, when the continents weren't yet separated. The International Appalachian Trail (IAT) does stretch all the way to Newfoundland from Mount Katahdin in Maine. It even has a few chapters in Greenland, Western Europe (UK, Spain, Netherlands, Scandinavia and such) and Northern Africa (Morocco), since the mountains there where once all part of the Central Pangean Mountains. Originally, some peaks were as high as the Alps or the Rockies. Amazing how much erosion has shorted and smoothed them over millions of years...

Also try States and Provinces Touching the Rocky Mountains, and the same concept, but for the Great Lakes.

How does St. Pierre & Miquelon touch the Appalachians? It's surrounded by water on all sides.

The range comprises some of the islands of St. Pierre and Miquelon. Don't ask how. I'm guessing some of the mountains on there are classified as part of the range.

There are mountain ranges under the ocean. *Gasp*

See my comment a few posts above. (In short, the mountains were all in the same range millions of years ago, when the world was just one huge continent. They got separated since, but maintain some healthy family ties.)

Isn't Saint Pierre and Miquelon an Island. Just saying.

Yes it is, but mountain ranges don't always have to be above water, so the range reaches there. Great Quiz

I don't think two little islands touch the Appalachians. I knew the answer based on "French territory" but I don't agree with it.

But you agree with Newfoundland, which is also an island?
