An easy way to Learn and Retain Tallest Mountains America 

Help with practice and learning a list of the tallest mountains of the USA in alphabetical order is explained below.

If you wish to learn the state and its tallest mountain by heart here is a memory technique to help. Constant repetition will work but learning a list of fifty states and their highest points is a major task. You can print out the lists for study.

  • Use the list below to associate each state with a number from one to ten.
  • An object that rhymes "one -- gun" is connected with the number.
  • Picture the state in your mind and link the object with it, building a mind picture in the most memorable way you can
  • Use humor, imagination etc. to enhance the memory.

To break the task into manageable chunks, mentally color each object the same for each group of ten. Remember, the more vivid, weird, mad, disgusting or unusual the image you create the easier it is to recall later.

Examples in remembering tallest mountains in America:

1 gun, Alabama -- a man with a black stetson is firing a black gun at card cheat and on the wall is a picture of a mountain titled "Cheaha Mountain".

When you reach the second blue group you might imagine something like:

1 gun, Hawaii -- A man with a blue face being sick (puking) over an island mountain labled "Pu'u We-kiu".

At the third green group imagine:

1 gun, New Mexico, a green man with a peaked cap pushing a gun on wheels up a sharp-pointed mountain -- Wheeler Peak
