Taking over for Joe before the body is even cold! :D I stink at these but here's my best guesses...

2. Seems like it should be obvious but I have no clue. Ammo Ravine Trail?
3. Lincoln Woods Trail
4. The roadside view entering Crawford Notch
5. Rocky Glen Falls
6. The Horn
7. Umm...somewhere south of Mt Washington :D
8. Zealand trail
9. Engine Hill
10. Upper Greely Pond

I didn't know answers to Joe's. I know answers to mine :D

1. Correct.
2. Nope.
3. Nope.
4. Nope.
5. Yes. Sorry if you saw my no. Got them mixed up. Rocky Glen Falls off the Basin-Cascades Trail is correct.
6. Nope.
7. .........
8. Nope.
9. Correct. Well, technically not on Engine Hill (which is South of this spot), but yes, the "Engine Hill Bushwhack".
10. Correct.

 Re: Let's Play a Game
Since I doubt anyone else will get it, #2 is the slide on Peak Above the Nubble.

#4 is somewhere on the Dry River Trail looking at the headwall of Oakes Gulf

#7 North Isolation?

That's all I've got, the pano is too small for me to make out the peaks.

Correct on #2.

#4 is indeed on the Dry River Trail, fairly near the Southern terminus.

No on #7.

I'll post some hints in the morning if no one figures out 3, 6, 7, 8 in the meantime. The pictures are all links to larger versions, which might help with the pano.

Incorrect on all fronts.

Some hints:
3 - Nearby was this spot: Image

6 - Zoom-in from the same spot: Image

7 - Shot from the endpoint of a roughly 2-mile loop.

8 - This is an un-named (as far as I know) beaver pond not far from a trailhead on a non-standard approach to a 4k.

3 - yep, that's the spot, between the trailhead and crossing #1.
6 - correct! One of my new favorite spots.

7 - no
8 - no

I also suck at these, but... Along McCrillis Trail? Or from Mt. Katherine?

Very close. I'll give it to you. #8 was from near the beginning of the Flat Mountain Pond Trail en-route to the McCrillis Trail. I believe the second picture was still along the Flat Mountain Pond Trail, not quite yet to the junction, but it may have been just after (~20 minute difference in time stamps).

Yay, I sort of got one. ;) I was orienting myself by the cliffs on Whiteface.
