Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Grand Canyon

Answer: Arizona

The major attraction of the Grand Canyon National Park is, of course, the mile deep canyon. The 1.2 million-acre national park was designated by legislation signed by President Woodrow Wilson in 1919, just three years after the National Park Service was established.
2. Mount Rainier

Answer: Washington

The park is named for Mount Rainier, an active volcano which is over 14,400 feet above sea level. Having more glacial ice than any other mountain in the lower 48 states, and located just fifty-four miles from the city of Seattle, it is considered one of the most dangerous volcanoes in the country.

The park's beauty was often highlighted by Secretary of Interior Sally Jewell, who led the Department from 2013 through 2016. She had climbed the mountain seven times before taking over management of the country's public lands.
3. Denali

Answer: Alaska

Denali National Park contains the Denali Mountain, North America's tallest peak, standing over 20,000 feet above sea level. The park contains six million acres of land, including forest, tundra, and mountains. "Denali" is an Athabaskan word meaning "the Great One" according to Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell, and the State's two U.S. senators in 2016.
4. Mesa Verde

Answer: Colorado

Mesa Verde National Park contains 5,000 archeological sites, providing historical knowledge of the lives of the Pueblo people who inhabited the area from 600 to 1300 AD. "Mesa Verde" is Spanish for "Green Table."
5. Shenandoah

Answer: Virginia

This nearly 200,000 acre park contains waterfalls, gorgeous landscapes, and a serene setting for wildlife. Just 75 miles from Washington D.C., it is a favorite destination for Washingtonians, particularly during autumn when the colors are changing and the trees are a gorgeous rainbow of colors.
6. Carlsbad Caverns

Answer: New Mexico

Carlsbad Caverns National Park is over 46,000 acres, and includes 33,000 acres of designated wilderness. The stars of this national gem, though, are the caves. The park contains more than 119 known caves. The caves were created by sulfuric acid dissolving the surrounding limestone, leaving behind the caverns.
7. Death Valley

Answer: California

Death Valley National Park is spread over eastern California and Nevada. Containing North America's lowest point in its below-sea-level basin, the park is known for the extremes of both record summer heat and snow-covered mountains in winter. The park's attractions include a ghost town, salt flats, sand dunes and trails.
8. Grand Teton

Answer: Wyoming

The 310,000 acre park contains the forty-mile long Teton Range. The Tetons are part of the Rocky Mountains, and are the main attraction in the park, which also contains over two hundred miles of trails, lakes and streams, and part of the Snake River. The park was named after the Tetons' tallest peak, Grand Teton, which rises 7,000 feet above Jackson Hole.
9. Crater Lake

Answer: Oregon

Crater Lake National Park was created by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1902. The star of the 183,000 acre park is Crater Lake. At 1,949 feet deep, it is the deepest lake in the United States. The lake was created by a volcanic eruption which caused Mount Mazama to collapse into itself.
10. Guadalupe Mountains

Answer: Texas

The 86,000 acre Guadalupe Mountains National Park contains the Guadalupe Mountains and the highest mountain in Texas, Guadalupe Peak, which stands 8,700 feet high. The park also contains the best example of a Permian Era fossil reef, along with extensive trails, caves, and wilderness.
