Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Mendenhall Glacier Caves

Answer: Alaska

As the name suggests these are ice caves inside a hollow glacier. The glacier is a short distance away from the capital of Alaska, Juneau. You will need to use a kayak to reach the periphery of the glacier and then climb. Inside the caves the ice has a beautiful blue colour. The glacier is twelve miles long.
2. Grand Prismatic Spring

Answer: Wyoming

This is Yellowstone's largest hot spring. The spring radiates colours from its centre that are similar to white colour going through a prism. The colouration is achieved thanks to bacteria that thrive in the hot conditions of the spring.
3. Antelope Canyon

Answer: Arizona

The canyon was created by wind erosion over a time period of millions of years. It is located in the Lake Powell Navajo Tribal Park. There are two distinct parts of the canyon named upper and lower. The best views of the canyon can be seen around midday when the sun shines on the sandstone walls and arches. The canyon is also known as corkscrew.
