Can you guess which national park these 'Jeopardy!' clues are about?

Did you know there are 63 National Parks in the United States (perhaps soon to be 64)? The first to be established was Yellowstone National Park, in 1872; the most recent to be added to the list was West Virginia's New River Gorge in 2020. The decades in between hold a great deal of history for the National Park system, and that makes for a whole lot of facts, too. Stacker compiled a list of "Jeopardy!" questions about U.S. National Parks using J! Archive.
