Mystery Photo 58: X Marks The Spot


X certainly marks the spot, but where is the spot?

The good professor might be retired, but that doesn't mean all the Traveler's puzzlers went with him. We'll ease back into Mystery Photos with this easy one.

At least it seems easy to us. Any idea what that X is, and where in the National Park System you can spot it?

We'll reveal the rest of the photo, and where it was taken, on Friday.


The trader's warehouse at Ft. Union?

Well, Lee Dalton nailed it, and hopefully no one saw his response before we hid it;-) Come on in, Lee, though you might be lonely.

Is it the Blackmith shop at Harpers Ferry?

Sad to say, David, despite my eight years in West Virginia, I never made it into the blacksmith shop at Harpers Ferry. That said, the photo is definitely not from there.

Is it Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site?

Caprice, you've got the park right, but where in it was the photo taken?

In the store at the trading post

The x is one the crosses that hold up the guard walk
