Should rename the quiz the "Name as many western states as you can in 1 minute", though that would be a bit too long for some people.

A bit tight on time - though I still probably would have blanked on Hawaii. Still, time to guess would have been nice.

A minute is perfect. There are only 50 states, and only about 15 or so that would be remotely possible.

We visited Kaua'i and loved the fact that we could go from beach to ranchland to desert to canyons to fir forest and snow-capped mountain and then to rain forest within 80 miles, and their mountains are less than a mile high. Such an amazing place. Mauna Kea on the Big Island is close to 14,000 ft from sea level, and 33,000 ft from the ocean floor.

Highest point in the Appalachians is Mount Mitchell at 6,684 feet. Not even close to making this list.

Idaho, Arizona, Oregon, Texas, and South Dakota all come in above North Carolina.

Hmm there probably aren't many quizzes where both Alaska and Hawaii are answers besides this one and the States quiz...they are so different yet so closely associated in the minds of the American population...always one and the other. Okay I'm done with my rant/poetic thoughts
