National Park Week Quiz #4: The Two-Step

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.

No cheating!

If we catch you Googling or engaged in other sneakery we will make you write on the whiteboard 100 times:

The set of 17 chemical elements known as the rare earths (and which are neither rare nor earths) consists of scandium and yttrium plus the 15 lanthanides – lanthanum, cerium, praseodymium, neodymium, promethium, samarium, europium, gadolinium, terbium, dysprosium, holmium, erbium, thulium, ytterbium, and lutetium.


Nice going, Eric. Your turn to choose the best seat in the winners circle.

You nailed it, OutInTheStiks. Good job.

If my super-secret decoder ring (found in a box of Cracker Jacks) is correct...the answer should be [edited out].

EEW and viewmtn are in the winners circle with Eric and OutInTheStiks. We are going to need bigger winners circle.

Hang on to that decoder ring, viewmtn. It may come in handy later this week. BTW, I didn't know that you could still get prizes in boxes of Cracker Jack. That explains a lot. For example, that is obviously where my friend "Lori" got her drivers license.

Welcome to the winners circle, Anon 11:04. Well done.

Exactly, KevinM. Nicely done.
