The answer boxes for the desert category didn't display. I could see there were a couple of unanswered questions but had no idea what they could be because there were no answer boxes for them.

This was awesome, but I have some requests for type ins? Could DC be accepted for Washington, DC (as someone who lives in the area that what we normally call it), and could the Gateway to the West be accepted for the St. Louis arch?

Also, I've usually heard Lexington and Concord as being the first battle of the Revolution, so I was a bit confused by the answer of Boston for that one

I took your requests into account.

For Boston, I was thinking of the Boston Tea Party. I'm obviously not American, so maybe I'm wrong about it, maybe it's more of a 'prelude to the revolution'.

Great quiz! You definitely took a while on this, I nominated it! I'm an American and I only got a 38...

Completely forgot about the Bering Sea, I kept trying to type in the Caribbean Sea.

Also, I would personally switch the Cascade Range with the Smoky Mountain Range, but that's not my place to judge.

The Great Smoky Mountains are part of the Appalachians, while the Cascades Range is a separate range.

Great quiz, but you might want to edit the "Teen Spirit" clue. The way it was worded, it was difficult to determine if you were asking for the song or the band.

Maybe accept "Crazyhorse" for carved mountain?

While the Crazy Horse Memorial is definitely a "sculpted mountain" it's not even close to being finished (and quite controversial as it's not well loved by the Lakotas themselves). The other answer is by far more popular.

The Lakota don't really like Mount Rushmore either. Mount Rushmore and the surrounding Black Hills are considered sacred.

Which ones? Are you on your phone?

Unfortunately, these quizzes are not great on phones. The fonts are not preserved, causing misalignments.

Why were the two volcanoes selected? Yes, they're both "active," but neither has done much in recent decades - or longer. I feel that better examples would be Kilauea in Hawai'i (erupts regularly; most recently in September 2023), and Mount St. Helens (catastrophic eruption in 1980, killing an estimated 57 people).

Man, tons of work, but my only rub is with the Hawaiian volcano. I tried Kilauea and I tried Mauna Loa, and honestly I thought i was spelling something wrong. There's something like 10 active volcanoes there, and knowing them all (and thus finally hitting the one the quiz is looking for) is a tall order. With no data to back my claim, I think the two I was trying are the most well known.

Mauna Kea is well known for being the “tallest” mountain in the world from base to peak, plus the fact that the mark is on the big island means it’s pretty easily identifiable

When my grandfather was a young boy, having moved back east from California, his teacher pointed to the map and asked the class to name the desert she was indicating. My grandfather piped up "The Mojave," pronouncing it "mo-hawv-eh." She immediately corrected him, telling him "No it's the Mojave," pronouncing it "mo-jave."

I've known that story since my childhood--and I still missed that question on this quiz.

You should either adjust the map's depiction of the Mojave desert to not overlap with the Sonora desert or add Sonora desert as a type-in.
