Great teaser!

Very clever!

Thought I'd humor you with what I thought the answer was:
Orlando! Tallest mountain in the "world" being the Matterhorn in Disneyworld... just a couple hours to fabulous ocean beaches or minutes to man made beaches within the "world"! I wasn't even certain there was a matterhorn in Disneyworld, but Space Mountain or Big Thunder Mountain could also have sufficed to be the tallest mountain in the "world".
It's been 25 years since I've been to D-world although we just got back last week from Disneyland, which we always enjoy!

Silly me, of course Big Thunder Mountain and Space Mountain do not have snow on them! But the Matterhorn does.

Have to admit my knowledge of geography helped with this one. Very good and I enjoyed it.

I might point out that the island of Guam is a submerged mountain, and from the base in the bottom of the Marianas Trench to the talles peak of Mount Lamlam, "Mount Guam" is 37, 820 feet tall, which is about 11.5 km, or 7.2 miles.

But great teaser!

I had no idea. My guess was Everest. Obviously that was incorrect. Good informative teaser.

How is this a brain teaser?

This was easy for me. I've been to the big island of Hawai'i.

Radio - I don't think you can count the marianas trench as part of the mtn of guam. I think you need to start from the sea floor. I'm guessing it's all in the definition of mtn geologically speaking.

Thank you for the explanation of the distinction between highest and tallest!

good fun. I got the volcano in the sea part, but not the location.

Jan 08, 2008

Got it right away. It was cool though, b/c you don't really think of needing a bikini when going near a snow covered mountain...b/c such mountains are usually not in warm climates...
Thanks for the teaser!

I see I wasn't the only one thinking Disney thoughts.

I was right. Hurray. I was going to say Tibet, but then I thought about the beaches. The only other would be in Hawaii. Thanks for the superb teaser. I loved it.

Once I read the answer I did a "doh" since I had heard this before. Oh well, it was fun trying!

I thought of Hawaii right away, but I couldn't remember if the answer was Mauna Kea or Mauna Loa. Fun quiz, though.

Technically Chimborazo is the highest mountain the world, in terms of being furthest from the Earth's core or center of gravity.

Glacial terrane?" Can't anyone spell anymore? It's "terrain."

craniac, don't you think to check stuff out before you make critical comments? "Terrane" and "terrain" are, according to the Collins dictionary, alternative spellings for the same thing.

I thought I had it but I said "Mauna Loa." I can never remember which one. Very good teaser

I knew the answer wasn't Everest, but I always thought the world's tallest mountain was K2, huh, learn something new every day.
