If youâ€™ve been following along with our yearlong â€˜Find Your Adventureâ€™ series celebrating the 100th anniversary of the National Park Service here and in the pages of MotorHome magazine, you may have encountered a few surprises (we know we did).
While many of the national parks weâ€™ve written about are well-known, there have also been a handful of somewhat obscure places we never would have associated with the agency. Rather than just come out and tell you about them though, we thought weâ€™d make a game of it by giving you clues below and letting you guess the National Park Service unit weâ€™re talking about. Click on the embedded link to see if youâ€™re correct:
- Located deep below the wind-swept South Dakota prairie, this former military site helped form a first line of defense during the Cold War.
- The only wildlife youâ€™ll hear rangers talking about on this rocky outcropping in San Francisco Bay are the yardbirds that used to call it home.
- While other national parks have their share of geothermal attractions, this smallest national park is the only place we know where you can actually bathe in that hot water.
- While many national parks have food service operations within their boundaries, this south-central Utah national park offers you a chance to pick your afternoon snack fresh from the tree.
- Home to what have to be the strangest elevators ever invented (podlike â€œtramâ€ units that move up around a half-parabola), this 63-story stainless-steel monument is intended as a tribute to the United States westward expansion in the 19th century.
