    Please qualify how much information we should include with our pics. More specifically, what would you like us to avoid in our captions and image titles?

    I thought I would let you all fly the way you choose on this.

    It is nice to know that you got the right NP without getting a pm.

    If anyone would prefer not to be spoiled let me know and we'll change it. I think that the trivia question will be fairly easy to decipher tho.

    I think names of spots in the parks would be ok - but try to avoid the actual name of the park in your pic. If you find a unique pic and can't crop out the name then go for it.

    erm. was my trivia question too hard?

    Topic two has some correct and some not so correct entries.



    Love the pics tho and not getting the correct park is just fine.

    Posting a second correct park pic is just fine to do too as I will give extra kudos to those who have the correct NP at the end of this.

    Yes, the idea is to post a picture but of the correct national park to which j has provided clues. For Topic 2, it seems you can click on her picture if you need an extra hint.
