National Park Week Quiz #4 is a bit unconventional, so be sure to follow the instructions carefully. If you can provide the name of the correct national park before 12:00 midnight EST today you will be eligible for Traveler’s National Park Week prize drawing and a chance to win a National Geographic Trails Illustrated Map for the national park of your choice.
Identify national parks that can be matched with these four descriptions.
1 - A park that has a loop drive and a mountain with a car's name
2 - A park that has an active volcano and boiling mud pots
3 - A park that has famous fossils and a lodge built on Homestead Act land
4 - A park that has tide pools and mountain goats
Take the first letter of each park's name and rearrange these four letters to spell out a word in a fifth national park’s name.
Before 12:00 midnight EST today, tell us the name of the national park identified in this way.
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 write on the whiteboard 100 times:
