The other top 10 lists available here may be of use to road trippers.

The Bering Land Bridge National Preserve will be a tough one. Has anybody visited it??? It's the big reason I was pretty confident that no one would score 10/10. However, despite it's obviously great historical significance, I'm not certain it would meet any reasonable definition of "landmark," unless we think in prehistorical terms.

8/10.

Might make 9 but the Bering Land Bridge! I doubt it. It also depends what we mean by visited, I did not climb Mt McKinley, but does looking at it count !

I have visited 6 of these 10.

The 2 in Alaska I havent visited. Denali I will likely visit eventually. The other place in Alaska ---no. Eventually I will do Devils tower. I my do Chimney rock if I choose to drive from the Black Hills to Denver through that way.

FRI Chimney Rock name is used twice---one is a national historic site which this is, then there is a national monument outside of Durango to the east just created within the last few years.

There's a Chimney Rock in NC, too. It's a state park, though.

6 for me.

6 out of 10 too if you include Mt Rainer, which we visited in late Aug of last year when it picked to be hidden.

Now you see it now you don't..... gave up Olympic NP that day for Rainer....that is what is called a bad break...if only we knew....drove half way up to Paradise and had to turn around when rain turned to sleet..

Can't win them all......
