National Park Mystery Spot 42: Striking Fear

Mystery Spot 42 is one of America’s 397 national parks. If you can identify it you will eligible for our monthly prize drawing.

Here are all the clues you should need to identify this mystery spot:

Bills are normally
Something else formally
When serious money is pledged.

The menacing flag that the pirates flew
Struck fear in the hearts of a merchantman’s crew.

In times of great need, your fears will subside
If you truly believe that God will provide.

Bonus clue, no extra charge: Though very small, its name’s longest of all.


No cheating! If we catch you Googling or engaged in sneakery of any kind, we will make you write on the whiteboard 100 times: "Occupational Safety & Health Administration statistics show that, every day in America, 12 people go to work and never come home, while 2,200 OSHA employees go to work and never work."


Good Morning.

I belive the answer is: Buck Island Reef National Monument Virgin Islands.

Sorry, Ken; it's not Buck Island Reef National Monument. You'll want to confine your search to the mainland.

You've nailed it, Connier; welcome to the Winners Circle. Judging from early returns, I suspect you'll have plenty of elbow room.

Lee Dalton and celbert have figured this one out. Why am I not surprised?

Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial?

Jean Lafitte National Historic Park and Preserve?

Your whiteboard punishment made me laugh outloud. Sneakery? Amongst Traveler followers? Impossible.
