There are two national parks in northwestern Wyoming, but only one is counted as a correct answer. The quiz should accept both parks as correct answers or the clue should be modified to exclude one of the parks.

I think some of these are a bit too lenient. "George" gave me the GW Bridge, and "Sierra" (which just means "mountains") gave me Sierra Nevada. I don't think the first words of these two should be enough (though I could see "Washington" and "Nevada" counting).
