I think if you're going to post an article about photography in National Park, then it should contain a few photographs of National Parks. Good ones too as that is what you are trying to encourage.
Also, Summitpost is an international site and National Parks exist in more countries than the USA. Your article is USA specific, so should say so in the intro.
If you've not finished the article yet, then you could mark it as 'Under Construction'. That way it won't appear in the new items list until you are finished.
Thanks for the suggestions. I am still new to summit post and figuring out the system. I appreciate the feedback.
No worries, it looks great now. Summitpost can be confusing when your new, I certainly found it hard when I first joined way back.
All you need on this page now is a primary image and your done.
