National Park Mystery Photo 22: Where Do You Need To Travel For This Shot?

Would Carmen Sandiego know where this shot was taken?

There are lots of great places to paddle in the National Park System, and lots of parks with caves and grottoes along their shorelines. But which unit of the system would you have to visit for this particular shot?


Pictured Rocks in Michigan

Is it Pictured Rocks?

Is this Kayenta sandstone? Then it should be at Glenn Canyon NRA or Canyonland NP , as these are the only parks with the Kayenta formation at water level - at least as far as I know. As the picture shows no sign of falling water levels, it probably is not on Lake Powell. which might point to Canyonlands. On the other hand they don't carry much equipment and Canyonlands usually is a multi day canoe trip. In any way, I'm not familiar enough with the area to know the exact spot.

Looks like Apostle Islands National Lakeshore.
