On especially slow days at a former job I’d arrange geography bees for my co-workers, printing maps with random unidentified countries. We’d sit at our desks and see who could locate Madagascar or Zimbabwe the fastest.

Puget Sound geography has ridiculously fewer bodies of water and islands to identify than, say, the world. And I’m ashamed to say I can’t name a lot of the areas reachable from Seattle by ferry, and I’d bet I’m not alone.

But today, that’s going to change. I’ve modified the map below, adding colors and lines. Numbers match names. Time to cram before I mail you a pop quiz!
