Round 1
National Parks Showdown

Round 1 voting for the 2013 National Parks Showdown ended yesterday at midnight, and now the results are in!

There were two extremely close matches, both happening in the Western Division.

-Lassen Volcanic edged out Saguaro by 1 vote

-Death Valley and North Cascades were tied up until the last hour when Death Valley managed to pull ahead

Yellowstone, perhaps inevitably received the most votes. However it was Shenandoah that end up with the highest percentage (sorry Cuyahoga Valley.)

Voting for Round 2 will start on Tuesday at 9AM, make sure to subscribe so that you don't miss out! Things are just about to get interesting.
