Each of the 12 jumbles listed below can be unscrambled, using exactly the same letters -- no more, no less -- to reveal a word that is in the name of at least one American national park.
We won’t make you provide the full name of each National Park System unit. Just unscramble the 12 jumbles before midnight today (12:00 p.m. EST) and you will be eligible for our monthly prize drawing and a chance to win a copy of Andrew Skurka's The Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide: Tools and Techniques to Hit the Trail.
Remember: We don't want the full names of parks, just the unscrambled words.
The answers and a list of readers who answered correctly will be posted in tomorrow's Traveler.
If we catch you Googling or engaged in other sneakery, we will make you read Edward Abbey’s Desert Solitaire: A Season In The Wilderness (McGraw-Hill, 1968) and see if you can name a single religion, race, ethnic group, or subculture that Abbey did not ridicule or insult.
