Great quiz! I definitely think the Aleutian Islands are sort of hard to see even after they are highlighted. Is there any way you could make that more easily visible?

Very minor nitpick: The accent circle for DC appears to completely overlay whatever that city in Maryland is, which makes it impossible to see what that answer is after the end of the quiz.

Rings and arrows will no longer block answers. Thanks for pointing it out.

The city in Maryland is still saying 'Washington DC' when I hover my cursor over it

Argh! Now that the quiz is over, I can see all of the things that I guessed correctly but didn't get credit for.

"Royale" was indeed "Isle Royale".

"Puget" was indeed "Puget Sound".

And contrarily, I was surprised Up worked for Upper Peninsula.

Yes, I also tried "Royale" and then moved on because I wasn't confident in that guess.

Very good fun quiz. I like how I got some of the lesser ones like Flagstaff and Lake Mead correct but somehow missed Yosemite and Lake Tahoe lol

Love it, love it, love it & nominated it! This quiz is right in my wheelhouse with obscure US geography. My first job was in Lexington Park, Maryland. Only missed 12, but should have gotten Mojave, McAllen, Duvall County and Rock Hill.

Great quiz, nominated. But when you zoom in, the dot for Lexington park looks too far up the Patuxent.

When I hover over Lexington Park after the quiz is over, it says District of Columbia for some reason.

Great quiz! i just found it incredibly difficult to understand what was being asked for many of the highlights (counties, lakes, national parks, etc.) but i suppose that's my fault for not knowing them well enough XD
