Maybe no other piece of land in the United States is as emblematic an icon for wilderness as our most visited national park, Yellowstone. As the second biggest national park in the continental United States, not to mention the very first national park, you’d think our country would have a pretty good grasp on its geography. Wrong.
According to a recent survey conducted by the Daily Mail, Yellowstone is not getting the attention it deserves. The survey reports that only 30% of United States citizens know where Yellowstone National Park exists on a map.
13% of the people surveyed thought Alcatraz was located in New York and 11% didn’t have a clue where it was located.
Other neglected landmarks include Mount Rushmore, The Grand Central Terminal, as well as the Jefferson Memorial. The only landmarks that are universally (relatively) recognized include New York’s Time Square (kind of self-explanatory right?) and the Statue of Liberty.
What about the JH Tram?
