Try this quiz. Answer the simple questions.

  1. If you're in Portland and facing the ocean, which way are you looking, west or east?
  2. How long will it take you to drive from Bangor Maine, to St Augustine, Florida?
  3. Is it true that developers are planning to build a megamall in the Grand Canyon?
  4. What can you see if you stand at the base of Ruby Falls, besides water?
  5. How many countries border the United States?
  6. What is the highest point in the US?
  7. What's the deepest lake?

  9. Which land border is longer, the US/Canada or the US/Mexico?
  10. If you travel to the Texas Hill Country, should you go armed?

Got all that? If you've answered all of these simple questions correctly, you might get hired as a tour guide for clueless Brits. As usual, click on the picture for answers.
