Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. "Hey mom, what's that?" The children point to what looks like a massive beach, but wait a minute...there are no oceans anywhere near this state. The Bonneville Salt Flats are a great complement to the Great Salt Lake, though. Where are we?
2. "Wow! Look at those giants!" The children exclaim as we pass through the Redwood National Forest. Here we can visit the chandelier tree, also known as the drive-through tree. Or we can go on an adventure through the forest, admiring the tallest trees in the world. Where are we?
3. "Look at that giant hole in the ground! What is that, mommy?" My children ask as they point to the Grand Canyon from the North Rim. We decide to drive to the South Rim, hike down through the Grand Canyon, and admire the many layers of rock. Tomorrow we will go water skiing in Lake Mead and take a tour of Hoover Dam. What two states will we visit during our journey through this amazing place?
4. "Look, mommy, it's a giant party!" My daughter can't wait to get out of the car and start dancing about and gathering beads from the Mardi Gras festival going on. We can still see damage from when Hurricane Katrina hit this area. The damage, however, did not ruin the true beauty of the south. The accent of the locals is truly a cultural experience in N'awlins. Where are we?
5. As we travel through the Blue Ridge Mountains, we pass by Monticello, Ash-Lawn Highland, and Montpelier, homes to Thomas Jefferson, James Monroe, and James Madison respectively. "Mommy look at that pretty gazebo," point out the children. The tour guide informs us that the "gazebo" is actually the refrigerator of Dolly Madison, where a very deep hole in the ground was used to keep food and drinks cold. Where are we?
6. "Mom, I'm definitely attending Yale for college," says my oldest son after touring one of the nation's elite Ivy League universities. We enjoyed the Gothic revival architecture that adorned the centuries-old halls, however my son felt they could have fixed their sidewalks so he didn't face plant in front of all the geniuses running about campus. Where are we?
7. "Mommy, thank you for bringing us here. I thought we'd never get out of that busy city," whined my middle son as we strolled into the biggest green area of this major city. Quite a different scene than Times Square. We visited the Navy Terrace while listening to a capella singers. We walked along the "Central" part of this park and listened to a bongo player and a saxophone player. We waited our turn to take pictures atop the "Imagine" memorial for John Lennon and my daughter loved "Strawberry Fields". Where are we?
8. "Mommy can we ride on one of those?" ask the children as we near a paddle wheel riverboat along the Mississippi River. "How about we soak our feet in the river?" I ask them trying to avoid a costly ride down the mighty Mississippi. My plan works and the children are satisfied watching the riverboats go downstream and wading in the river off the shore in Memphis. If we did take a riverboat along the entire Mississippi River, which state would we NOT pass by or through?
9. Flying to our next destination, we get off the plane and are greeted with a friendly "Aloha" and given leis upon arrival to our hotel. The children cannot wait to get to Waikiki Beach in Oahu to go surfing, but I prefer the beautiful waterfalls awaiting us in Kauai. Where are we?
10. For our last destination we are happily warming up by the fireplace in our cabin while it snows outside in the beautiful Jackson Hole Resort. Once we finish our snow skiing trip, we will head north to the Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone National Park where we will see geysers shooting up water. Where are we?
