Is there something in that last picture that makes it distinctive from fifteen other possible states?

I think that is a picture of the Blue Ridge Mountains, part of the Appalachians. While 15 may be a bit extreme, certainly they cover at least 4 or 5 states.

What is #15 anyway? That isn't by chance Rosa Parks getting arrested is it?

If you click on the picture, you can see the original source (which in this case would tell you that you are correct).

I would have put tennessee because the view of the mountains there looks exactly like that but since it was already there, i put the closest state

I would agree that it could just as easily be Tennessee, but the only mountains that I've seen that look quite like that are along the border between Tennessee and North Carolina.

That's a pretty distinctive view of the Great Smoky Mountains. Means it's one of two states- not too hard to guess them both, especially since Tennessee was already a different answer.

Iowa is pretty famous for its "Bridges of Madison County." It was the first state I tried.

The movie was known for a while in the 80s or whenever. New Hampshire and Vermont hype their covered bridges as a symbol ad nauseum though.

Taken from the covered bridge wiki:

"Iowa – Nineteen covered bridges were built in Iowa between 1855 and 1885; nine remain, five of which are in Madison County "

"Vermont is justly famous for her covered bridges. No other state has built and still possesses so many of the old timbered crossings in so small an area. 106 covered bridges were reported in Vermont"

I agree with other posters, I've never heard of Iowas covered bridges yet I've always known Vermont as the land of maple syrup and covered bridges. Looking at the numbers I would say this picture/answer is very misleading.

I knew it immediately because it is a photo of the bridge on the cover of the book, "The Bridges of Madison County". The movie starred Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood, and Oprah added the book to her book club list, and filmed a show from there. I wasn't a fan of the book, but it was a big deal in the '80s, at least among the women I know.

A lot of these are just too generic, especially the mountain shots. You can tell its the Rockies or the Appalachians, after that its just guessing.

Well #4 is Mount Rainier, #8 is Rocky Mountain National Park, and #18 is the Great Smokey Mountains. I think #17 might be Glacier National Park?

Actually, # 8 is Maroon Bells, just outside of Aspen. I know it well, and will be there in 10 days. It is one of the most photographed mountains in Colorado.

I think if you've seen them you know them, although I was in Glacier National Park last summer and I didn't recognize that shot, but Montana was my first guess. My problem came with the Chesapeake. I thought it must be either the Hudson or Mississippi River. After I saw the answer I realized I should have known it.

I was actually impressed that all the different mountain shots were fairly distinctive. I'm not saying I knew all of them immediately, but none of them took more than 3 guesses. Having been to Great Smoky Mountains and Rocky Mountain National Parks definitely helped.

But - I echo my comment above - the Colorado mountain shot, #8, is Maroon Bells near Aspen and not in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Yes, I'm curious to know how distinctive some of these even are to Americans.
