Today is the 50th playing of the Super Bowl. To mark the historic season , Park Thrillers mashed up all 32 NFL teams with their national park counterparts. Today we are down to two, the Carolina Flyers and the Denver Dinosaurs.
Carolina's mashup park is the Wright Brothers National Memorial in North Carolina, the site where the Wright Brothers taught the world to fly. Meanwhile, Denver's mashup park is Dinosaur National Monument in the Northwest corner of Colorado. Dinosaur National Monument is the site of one of the world's largest collection of dinosaur fossils.
Who are you rooting for in the first National Park Bowl?
