Fun quiz, quite educational. Google gives the 'Marais' river as the 'Marias' though. Perhaps something to look into?

32/100. That was tough. The only one that I missed that I heard of before was Niobara. Nommed.

How about some love for Maryland? It is the only state in the Mississippi basin that does not have a river included on the map for this quiz. The Youghiogheny River would be the obvious candidate at 132 miles in length. I nominated this quiz anyway because I love the concept.
