That's awesome John! Thanks for all the work you do... I'm looking forward to Michigan. I was hoping to help with it, but my work schedule has been relentless this month.

You da man!! This is great for me because now I have all of my ranked peaks on the site.

Three comments:
First, there is another possible candidate for Point 2210 about 2.5 miles west of the summit you have listed:
http://mapper.acme.com/?ll=48.00485,-90.27689&z=14&t=T
(I hit both "your" summit and the alternate summit.)

Second, there is a ridgeline with three 2180-foot contours less than a mile north of Pine Mountain that are candidates for being the actual ranked peak:
http://mapper.acme.com/?ll=47.90587,-90.33796&z=15&t=T
(I also summitted all three of those points, and the terrain is such that they are all plausible candidates if the sizes of the contours are correct.)

I'm not sure if you systematically note these kinds of situations for peaks.

Finally, Point 1990 on the Pine Mountain quad has the unofficial name "Blueberry Hill":

I don't miss my 10 months of exile in Minnesota in 2004-5, but I fondly recall planning and "climbing" my 7 ranked peaks there!

Thanks Brian
Generally not, but in cases where the areas are so far apart as with 2210, it makes sense.

Nice work John.

I think I have a correction however for point 1565 at 47.3337N, 91.2540W. I think the actual high point for that area is at 47.3378N, 91.2506W and it is known as Mount Trudee, elevation 1,580'. While that name isn't given in the USGS maps it is named in the "Guide to the Superior Hiking Trail" published by the Superior Hiking Trail Association and on maps of Tettegouche State Park.

Thanks Roger - updated with unofficial name and new location.
