National Park Mystery Spot 22: See the Sunrise

Can you identify the national park mystery spot with just a few clues?

Hickory, dickory, dock, the road runs up the granite rock.

Catch the morning sun about as early as anyone.

Eyes that roam from the top of the dome will see the sea.

It's no longer green, but it's not ripe either.

Bonus clue, no extra charge: Atacama

Mystery spot puzzler answers are never national parks per se.  Each mystery spot in the puzzler series is a specific building, landform, water body, or other named object/site within one of the 394 units of the National Park System.

Be sure to check back with Traveler tomorrow for the answer and an explanation of the clues.


Congrats to Anon 8:20, who first ID-ed the mystery spot.

We'll embargo the answer so other readers can take a crack at this puzzler. The answer, together with an explanation of the clues, will appear in tomorrow's edition of Traveler.

Looks like sunrise from Clingmans Dome in Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Nope, not Clingmans...

Mount Desert in Acadia?

Not Mount Desert.
