There is a campaign going on this year of the National Park Service Centennial called Find Your Park. My boss told me about a fun quiz on their website that I took for fun.
Called the National Park Personality Quiz, you basically click on your favorite photo and answer 11 simple questions like “If you were a tree, what would it be?” Taking the quiz on my smartphone, I just picked the prettiest picture from the tiny options.
Still, I was surprised at the results – I’d been to 3 out of 4 of the recommended parks, and the 4th is at the top of my wish list. The quiz told me “You belong in the mountains beside a lake watching elk.” Hmm…that’s pretty much what I’ve been doing for the last 6 months…freaky. Also “Your National Park Match is Rocky Mountain. Also visit other national parts in Colorado: Mesa Verde, Great Sand Dunes, and Black Canyon of the Gunnison.” I loved visiting those parks and reviewed them briefly in a recent post on the Centennial.
Besides my time spent workcamping in Yellowstone this season, I got to visit Grand Teton and Glacier National Parks. More blog posts on those beauties to come. On my way back east I’ll visit South Dakota’s Wind Cave, Jewel Cave and Badlands National Parks. When planning my next trip, I pulled out my Rand McNally Road Atlas which has a map including all the National Parks. From there I decide which sights to see and to where to overnight.
Take a moment, take the quiz and let me know which park is your best bet and if you’ve been there.
