About This Quiz

Geology is the study of the earth and the stones, rocks, and boulders that are found in it. While it may sound like a very boring science, and we won't lie, it can be, it's pretty interesting once you get past trying to date rocks and finding out how much oxygen some really good soil has. So, back to these wonders that not only have us questioning how they even came to be and how they've stayed around for so many years. We've assembled a list of some of the most awe-inspiring and most visited geological wonders in the U.S. 

Some of them aren't cookie-cutter rock formations, but they do, for the most part, involve the earth and/or a rock formation. We won't ask you to name them, because some names are quite similar, but we will ask you to tell us in which U.S. state they belong in. A few of them will be really easy to match, but some of them aren't. It's time to pace yourself and see whether you really know in which states each of these rock formations can be found. Are you ready?
