  1. It should also include Mt. Whitney at 14,000 and some change, the highest mountain in the contiguous 48 states.

  2. what kind of change Old Geezer??? Mt. Rainiar comes in at 14,410 feet… guess that would be chump change eh… 95 feet different..

  3. Totally not complaining here, but I’m a teacher and this is an AWESOME resource, however- I can’t use it because the links on the side of the page have inappropriate language, which really stinks.

    • Can’t you right-click and save the graphic as a jpeg (image) file and just use it that way?

      Or, here’s a link to the image by itself:

  4. The graphic for “depth of the Grand Canyon” is misleading. The rim of the Grand Canyon is from 7,000 to 9,000 ft. above sea level. When you reach the bottom, you are still about 2,500 feet above sea level.

    • I agree. Also, the Statue of Liberty and the Great Pyramid of Giza are not located right next to each other. Very misleading indeed.

  5. Awesome, perhaps it should mention the average distance from the surface of the earth to the center. (6,370km = 2,089,895ft)
