Trivia Answer

Texas

info from www.GoneToTexas.com
Guadalupe Peak, TX

I posted the trivia
 (see yesterday's blog post)
 because I was surprised by the facts.
Most of the mountains are in the far west area of Texas
and the Big Bend Area.

The website stated 91 mountains over a mile high,
Denver is a mile high and does not have any mountains in town.
So, I think its kind of a trick question.


The King Ranch in South Texas
is larger than the state of Rhode Island

Texas Motto: Friendship

Texas: from the Caddo Indian word
"Tejas" meaning
those who are friends

Official state sport: Rodeo


Largest State Capitol (Austin)
constructed of 15,000 carloads of
Pink Granite


All of today's pictures are from
 various sites on the internet.

  3. Yahooie Louie! Looks like I guessed correctly. Seems like Texas has been my second home the last six years. It's size is enough to boggle the mind.
