#6 has to be Michigan, northwest lower peninsula, maybe Glen Lake? I can tell from the visible sand in the picture.

Anyway, I will attempt the rest, even though I will fail miserably:

1. Arkansas
2. Wisconsin
3. Hawaii
4. Idaho
5. Montana
6. Michigan
7. California
8. Pennsylvania
9. Colorado
10. Nebraska

1) Ohio
2) Texas
3) New Mexico
4) Nebraska
5) I would have guessed Saskatchewan, but since that's not on the menu I'll go with SW Minnesota
6) Foliage suggests east, probably northeast. View of NY from VT side of Champlain?
7) I think this one's the most interesting, since there's enough here (elevation, beach & access, inlet) you could probably suss it out with some digging. California?
8) Any number of states, but central-west New York for the sake of argument.
9) Wyoming
10) Oregon
The whole purpose of this was to be challenging. I wouldnt want to go and put up pics of, say, Mount Rushmore, now would I? The answer to your cactus question is: Opuntia humifusa.

As for your answers, you were incorrect on all of them. Dont feel bad about it, I made these tough. Just wanted to see how far apart peoples' answers are. My main purpose of this thread is to show everyone how vastly different, yet similar some states can really be.
