Geographica: The Southwestern States

     I think Ally is doing such a good job writing these geography questions that I've asked, more than once, to be sure they are really her own words.  They are.  Are they too easy?  Don't worry.  When she has worked her way through the US, we'll have her write harder questions.  We are addicted to quizzing each other around here.  Only now, it's not as much fun.  Ally knows really obscure facts and we can't keep up. Yesterday I missed every question on Brazilian states.  I do realize, if you live in Rio, these aren't distant places.  But, well...I don't.  And rivers?  I know two in South America.  It would appear there are a few more.  I'm just saying, watch out.  It's all fun and games until someone asks you to name the third largest city in Ecuador.
