This week: Mountains

"Climb every mountain" as Julie Andrews sang. Even if you're just an armchair hiker, see if you can scale the heights of these xrefer quiz questions about mountains.

She most certainly did not. The old nun did, after she ran back there from teh van Trapp's saying she couldn't take it any more. The old lady burst into song...

Climb every mountain. Ford every stream...
Follow every rainbow, til you find your dream


and so on

Don't forget to check your answers after you've tried them. Good luck! I liked geography, so I got nine

Notes:

1. The corny intros are straight from xrefer, so it is not my fault that 90% of readers think Julie Andrews played back-up guitar on Usher's "Yeah".

Oh. They are also incorrect.

2. Expect no sympathetic or otherwise responses from me as I will be absent without leave for a week starting now. I am heading to China for a few days in the rural wilds of Yunnan - gulp!

That's quite annoying.

QUESTIONS:

1. What is the world's highest mountain?

Everest. Unless there's some island out there they are counting

2. Which mountain chain of western North America runs from Alaska to Mexico?

Rockies

3. What is the name of the famous South African mountain that overlooks Cape Town?

No idea

4. The Apennines are a long mountain range in which country?

Oh dear. England?

5. What is the highest mountain in the British Isles?

Thinggy, in Wales. Ben Nevis?

6. The Matterhorn is on the border between which two countries?

7. What is the highest mountain in Africa?

Kill a man, Jaro.

8. In which island are the mountain ranges of Kyrenia and the Troodos Mountains?

??

9. In which country are the Harz Mountains?

Austria?

10. In Greek mythology, which mountain in Greece is known as the home of poetry and music?

Olympia? I don't know
