Great quiz!

My only gripe is the "Continental Divide" question- I thought it was asking for a specific mountain range, and gave up after guessing Rockies, Absaroka, and Tetons.

It'd be nice if it was clearer what exactly you were asking for.

For sure! It's rare to find another user on here who makes national park quizzes. They mostly don't get a lot of traffic, but I'd love if you made more park quizzes.
