Kevin's flower quiz is hard. After you take a stab at his photos take a guess at these.

Kevin's rules apply. One guess per person per day. Rule number two doesn't apply since it was aimed at me.

#6) Not easy, but if you can guess the city you can find the name of the mountain on the right

#7) Tropical, but fairly iconic

#8 & #9) Double bonus round, nail these two and you're a bigger mountain geek than myself

#1) Mount Mansfield, Vermont

#4) Mount Katahdin, Knife Edge Ridge, Maine

#6) Hong Kong, China is close enough as there are probably a thousand names for that peak

#7) Mount Otemanu, Bora Bora, French Polynesia

#3) Sorry, not Mount Monroe

#4) Mount Katahdin, Knife Edge Ridge, Maine

Brad's got the right answers, but from the wrong angles.

If you get just one of the mountains in 8 & 9 I'll reveal the other.

Looks like one of them in #8-9 is K2.

Sorry, not K2. Although I do see some resemblance.

I'll give a hint that its in Nepal and visible from the Everest Basecamp trekking route.

#2 could be confused for a mountain of the same name in New Hampshire, but this peak is in Washington.

#8 (the mountain on the left) is part of the Everest Massif.

I'll put this thread to rest. The peak on the left is Lhotse, the 4th highest mountain in the world. It is connected to Mount Everest via the infamous South Col. The peak on the right is Ama Dablam.
