National Park Mystery Photo 32: What Object Might This Be?

Well, there are trees in the background, but that doesn't help much. Where in the National Park System might you see this "thing"?

With hopes of baffling the most-skilled of national park sleuths, we've gone to extremes with our cropping tool for the Traveler's latest Mystery Photo. Winners need not only identify what it is, but locate the park in which it was taken.

If we've succeeded in baffling you, the answer will arrive tomorrow.


One of the Three Sisters Lighthouses at Cape COd National Seashore?

Well, surprisingly (at least to me!), someone just nailed the answer. But they live in the neighborhood, so we're going to hold off on revealing it. But congrats to Anonymous 9:07 a.m. (EDT), 7:07 a.m. MDT!

It's a cistern and it's in Rocky Mtn. National park (thanks for the clue that it was in MDT, otherwise I was going to guess Zion Park :-).

It's not a cistern, Anon 11:35 EDT (9:35 MDT), nor is it located in Rocky Mountain National Park or any other place in the Mountain time Zone. I'm afraid you've made too much of that EDT/MDT thing.

I'm guessing one of the Three Sisters lighthouses in Cape Cod NS.

I'm pretty impressed, we've got another correct answer, this one from Anonymous at 1:21 p.m. MDT. Obviously I didn't crop it tight enough. Of course, when the full photo is revealed tomorrow, some will disagree with that.

Looks like painted wood shingles. Looks New England to me. I'll say Acadia somewhere.
