Good quiz. A better hint for the other national park though might be boob-shaped mountains, since that is the origin of the name.

Those were some seriously hard up explorers who thought that those mountains were shaped like boobs.

Every time I am trying to think of Yellowstone Park, I think of Jellystone Park first. I also kept trying "Old Reliable" for the geyser, which I now recall was the name for my father gave to our indomitable 1988 Dodge minivan.

He was lucky to get a reliable van. Those, and most everything else manufactured by Chrysler in the 80s were junk. Unless that nickname was sarcastic...

Advice to travelers: Never leave Yellowstone by the east entrance and decide to drive to Cody to spend the night. It's a terrible drive in the park after dark, and because there is a rodeo nearly every night in Cody, motel rooms are priced sky high in the summer. It's a small town in the middle of nowhere, so you're pretty much at their mercy. We paid $189 for a room at the Super 8 and were happy to find one at that price at 10 pm. Some ordinary motels were asking nearly $300 for a regular room.

On the other hand, the drive through the canyon between the East Entrance and Cody is spectacular during the day!

Back when I was young, I'd go into the motel and ask how much it was. If it was more than $50, I'd counteroffer. If that was refused, I'd sleep in the car.

And definitely don't book a room in Cody in May then try to exit the Northeast gate without making sure it didn't get snowed in the night before only to have to backtrack through the whole damn park out the North gate and up into Billings then say screw it I'll just drive on to Rapid City instead.

It doesn't exist. I've been there. It's an empty void of blackness.

Drove through (past?) Lost Springs back in '85. At the time, they had a population of 9, and also had a bar. Sad to see that the population appears to be down to only 4 now, but at least they still have the bar! (if you don't have a bar, you don't have a town)

Completed all fifty quizzes. Got at least two points on each. Got ONLY two points on Wisconsin, Connecticut and South Dakota. I declare these therefore to be the most obscure states.
