Cool quiz!  Keep 'em coming.  Kicking myself for only getting six right.  I confused Bear Creek for Bear Canyon (or vice versa) thinking of the shorter drainage over by Switzers instead, and completely flubbed on Mt. Wilson's telescopes.

70%  Confused

The Mt. Wilson telescope, Joe Elliott, and Eaton Canyon tripped me up.

Good stuff Cucamonga Man.

9 of 10 for me, too (although I must confess, I lucked out with wild guesses on several)...I too missed the telescope one...and I peek at the 150-foot Solar Tower Cam Website frequently...

Keep 'em coming!

Joe Elliott was a tree, named after the man. But it wasn't an oak tree. It was a sugar pine. I threw in the oak tree choice to make it a little bit harder.

Only 6 out of 10. Some tricky stuff in there. Wilson telescope names? Not sure that should count against me.

Very well. I'll count that one against myself. And since I also had to look up Joe Elliott, that puts my baseline at 80%.

That was cool. I only got 6 correct, meaning that I need to expand my knowledge of the local mountains. Basically I'm too lazy to drive to the western parts of the range.
