National Park Mystery Spot 21: Alas, Poor Hillside Homes

Award-winning actress Jane Seymour was TV's Dr. Quinn. Photo by Tabercil via Wikipedia.

Can you identify mystery spot 21 using just these clues?

The warm, dry winds fan fearsome fires that turn hillside homes into flaming pyres.

The largest spread in the second-largest state.

Antonio de Padua María Severino López de Santa Anna y Pérez de Lebrón

Supremely important.

Gunfight at the OK Corral + Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman = clue

Bonus hint, no extra charge: Samoa gets no cigar.

The answer will be embargoed until tomorrow. Be sure to check the February 10, 2011 edition of Traveler for the answer, an explanation of the clues, and Quizmeister Kudos (names or cyberhandles of the winner and runners-up).


Rangertoo has nailed this one. (What took you so long, my friend?) The answer will be embargoed to let other Traveler readers try to work it out.

Rangertoo, while the rest of the Traveler Tribe works on this puzzle, here's a bonus puzzler for you. Take a look at the photo accompanying this quiz and tell me what you notice. Hint: one doesn't match the other.

2nd Largest State?? Are you sure it isn't the third largest state?

[Yup, second-largest. You would have to cut Alaska in half to make the referenced state the third-largest. Ed.]

Big Bend National Park. Her eyes are different colors.

[Big Bend, no. Heterochromia, yes. Jane Seymour's right eye is hazel and her left one is green. Ed.]

Palo Alto Battlefield? Its in Texas,the second largest state, and Santa Anna fought in the Mexican-American War

Not Palo Alto Battlefield.

Big Thicket National Preseve

I'm thinking San Antonio Missions NHP.
