Daze Quiz
November 10, 2014 09:46PM
I figured that I would challenge myself to see how many of the wonderful photos that chick-on took for his daze series that I could identify. I allowed myself to looks at maps but not to go back and search through chick-on's past posts or his bountiful photo galleries. I'm guessing I will get about 70% right. Maybe a scoring system of 2 for a correct answer, 1 for a partially correct answer (i.e. In the ballpark) and of course 0 for an incorrect answer. I guessed for a few locations but also kept some blank. Here are my answers, lets see how I do.

I know Buster knows Yosemite. Not sure he wants his score tho.
Since he took the time... Here's his score:

1. 1+2+0+0+1+0+0+1+2+0+0+2+1+1+2+2=15/32
2. 1+1+2+1+1+2+2+1+1+0+0+2+1+2+2+2+2+1+2+1=27/40
3. Numbers off... Gave credit for Mattie/GCT 2 per. and 1 per Echo Crk + Lyell/Mac= 6/42 (ouchie)
4. 0+0+0+0+2+2+2+2+0+0+0+2+2+2+0+0+0+0+1+2+2+2+1+1+2+2+2+2+2+0=33/56
5. 2+2+1+2+2+0+2+2+2+2+2+2+1+2+2+2+2+0=30/36 (crushed it)

Total: 111/206

In the spirit of Whose Line Is It Anyway? ... He really gets 9 billion pts.

A little over 50% is better than I expected but worse than I hoped. At first I thought it wouldn't be too hard because of all the places I did recognize, but once you try it, it is really hard to pin down locations. I went through my own photos of trips past and it can be difficult to find the locations, especially for off trail areas. The change of perspective can be subtle but dramatic. If you haven't been at the exact location it can be hard to pin it down. Plus, the longer time since I had been in the area made it harder to remember the location. Guess that means I need to get out more often.

Anyhow, thanks to chick-on for putting up all the wonderful photos in the first place and then giving me a grade for each location. Could there can be an answer key in the future just to know the actual locations.

Over 50% is way better than I could do.

For July/Aug #9 and #10 you're thinking too far east, into the Clark Range. Not quite that far, here's my TR: http://yosemitenews.info/forum/read.php?17,76415
