somehow it's also satisfying when you run out of answers to think of, only to realize after time lapsed that you actually did not know any of the remaining answers. Gave it my all! 12/59

I was reminded of the scene in West Wing where President Bartlet offers to list and describe in detail each and every one of America's National Parks to Josh. In the US it would be feasible - and probably a worthwhile bucket list item - to visit them all. Here in Australia we have over 500 - over 200 just in my state of Queensland. Probably not gonna try and make it to all of them.

So far I've been to 41 of the 59 U.S. parks. Not sure I'll make it to them all though - American Samoa is pretty far and some of the parks in Alaska are very remote. At my age, don't think I'm up to the challenge of roughing it for a week in park only accessible by bush or seaplane.

I knew most of the ones on the west coast (only half of Utah, Alaska, and California though), mostly because my family always takes really long road trips to different parks. My dad also samples in Lassen.

I was much worse at this than I thought -- I think because I associate my thoughts/memories with actual places rather than the official nomenclature of the park. Would've been a hard quiz either way but I surprised myself in that I only got 21 right.

We've tried three times to visit Carlsbad while traveling, and each time something bad happened - someone in the car became very ill or we had car trouble. It is now permanently off our list.

I added it, but I don't like it. It should be a national monument, not a national park. It's only 90 acres in size.

Yea, I'm kind of with you there. Granted, the "park" label does not mean much of anything within the NPS, but still I feel like it doesn't do justice to the spectacular peaks of Rocky Mountain to have this artifact of the automobile age sharing the distinction.

Arches and Yellowstone are absolutely magnificent NPs! Definitely wanna see Acadia once, that region must be wonderful. Sad that the region around Lake Tahoe isn't a national park, it's of the most iconic regions I've ever seen!
