National Park Mystery Photo 46: Shallow Water





In which unit of the National Park System was this photo taken, and what does it depict?

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 atomic clocks used to record Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) are hyper-accurate, but not quite accurate enough. To maintain the globe's official standard time, "leap seconds" must be added during leap years (years divisible by four, unless divisible by 100 and NOT by 400).  The next leap second will be added at one second before midnight on June 30, 2012.  As a consequence, clocks recording UTC time on that date will display 23:59:59 for two seconds instead of just one.


We are pleased to welcome Eric Nelson to the winners circle.  Well done.

Right on the button, robertnc.  Plenty of room left in the winners circle, folks.  Are you going to let this newbie show you up?  ;o)

Low tide at Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge?

Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge is not a National Park System unit, Jerry. The refuge is managed by the USFWS as a component of the National Wildlife Refuge System.  

How about low tide at Assateague Island National Seashore?

Sorry, Ted; this photo does not show low tide at Assateague Island National Seashore.

Is it Low Tide at Cabrillo National Monument?
