It’s Trivia Tuesday 2-4-2020!

An Evening View Of Pyramid Mountain And Landscape

It’s Trivia Tuesday! Did you know, in 1956, author Jack Kerouac spent time as a fire spotter for the National Park Service in North Cascades National Park, soaking in the solitude and getting inspiration for his books.

You can read more trivia and test your national parks knowledge with Quiz and Trivia #3 published in today’s edition of the National Parks Traveler. Just click on the image above.

This image was taken from the Diablo Dam in Ross Lake National Recreation Area, a part of the North Cascades Complex. The mountain you see is called Pyramid Peak (I wonder why …).

The Mountain At Emmons Vista

Did you know that Emmons Glacier in Mount Rainier National Park has the largest surface area of any glacier in the contiguous U.S.? And a great place to view this glacier and The Mountain is at Emmons Vista, in the Sunrise area of the park.

Knowledge is power, folks!

Trivia Tuesday

Blue Star Pool

Blue Star Pool on a chilly autumn morning, Yellowstone National Park

It’s Trivia Tuesday,¬†folks! Here’s one from Janet Spencer’s “Yellowstone Trivia”: One ranger set out to remove the pennies from Upper Geyser Basin’s Blue Star Pool. After 15 minutes of work, he removed 700 pennies. That means 700 people figured “just one penny” wouldn’t hurt.

As a National Park placard says near another hot spring in Yellowstone National Park: “Thermal features are not trash cans or wishing wells – they are among earth’s rarest geologic treasures …”

Do your part, don’t litter, pack out what you pack in, and report any vandalism to a park ranger.
