National Park Mystery Photo 43: What's In Store?

This isn't wine.

In which unit of the National Park System was this photo taken, and what does it depict? We'll give you a hint: It's not wine.

Readers who answer correctly will be eligible for our monthly prize drawing.

The answer will be posted in tomorrow's Traveler.

No cheating! If we catch you Googling or engaged in sneakery of any description, we'll make you write on the whiteboard 100 times:

The 34-letter word "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" of Mary Poppins fame is thought to have been derived from a combination of the concepts super-  (above), cali-  (beauty), fragilistic-  (delicate), expiali- (to atone), and docious-  (educable). Although this can be taken to have many different meanings, such as "atoning for educability through delicate beauty," it was said to mean "something to say when you have nothing to say" in the Mary Poppins context.  Some people with nothing better to do have learned to spell this word backwards, which is suocodilaipxecitsiligarfilacrepus.


Bent's Old Fort?

Sorry, Eric; this photo was not taken at Bent's Old Fort.

Folks, please remember that this mystery photo puzzle requires you to submit a two-part answer. Tell what is depicted and identify the unit of the National Park System in which the photo was taken.

How about a keg of gunpowder at Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site?

The Quizmeister has sniffed the breeze and he thinks he detects what might be a relentless process-of-elimination going on upwind. This photo was not taken in Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site. Next, please. :o)

The Armory at Harper's Ferry
Barrels of black powder.

Running out of 1840s era fur trade posts. How about keg of gunpowder at Fort Laramie National Historic Site

Sorry, Becci; this mystery photo does not show barrels of black powder at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park.
