National Park Mystery Spot 25: Not Even a Puddle to Wet a Frog


Put these clues together and they will lead you to this month's mystery spot, which is within a National Park System unit. 

A trunk in a shell serves them well.

The hexagon held them against their will.

No lake, no pond, no bog; not even a puddle to wet a frog.

Seven in a cluster is the land it can muster.

Bonus clue, no extra charge:  'Tween your toes it will ooze, and it clings to your shoes.

Check Traveler tomorrow for the answer and an explanation of the clues.

Eric was the first to supply the correct answer (at 6:41 am EDT). Eight others also ID-ed this mystery spot: Anon (7:35), Ed123, L Bebout, Davey J, y_p_w, Steve B, RangerLady, and Road Ranger.


Congrats to Eric (6:41 EDT), who  was the first to identify Mystery Spot 25. We'll embargo the answer until tomorrow morning and let others take a crack at it.

Folks, remember that the mystery spot is not a national park. It is a place in a national park (one of the 394 National Park System units, that is).

 Aside to Davey J.: You are in the ballpark.Now pin it down.

Soda Springs at Devils Postpile - just a major guess.

Sorry, Carol B; it's not Soda Springs at Devils Postpile.

Anon 7:35, Ed123, and L Bebout have all joined Eric in the winner's circle.

Cottonwood Springs. Joshua Tree NP.

Sorry, Jason; it's not Cottonwood Springs in Joshua Tree National Park.
