Ken Unger was the first reader to ID mystery photo 42. 'Way to go, Ken.

Sorry, Dick G., but we can recognize a fishing expedition when we see one. We are looking for the answer, not your thought processes. :o)

Is it in Petroglyph National Monument in ABQ?

Sorry, Randy, but Mystery Photo 42 was not taken in Petroglyph National Monument.

Scottys Castle in Death Valley.

Not Scotty's Castle in Death Valley, Barbara.

It's the metal sculpture in front of the Joshua Tree NP visitor center in Twentynine Palms. I was there for my daughter's spring break in 2009, but I don't remember it looking quite so bad. That is unless the lighter areas are paint that peeled off between the time this picture was taken and our visit.

Eric Nelson has also nailed Mystery Photo 42. That makes two so far.

Is it the Desert View Visitors center at the Grand Canyon National Park?

Sorry, Rich, but it's not the Desert View Visitor Center at Grand Canyon National Park.

Is it the Indian Memorial at Little Big Horn??

This mystery photo is not the Indian Memorial at the Little Bighorn Battlefield National Monument.

This one is driving me nuts. I'm almost certain I've seen this thing, but can't for the life of me remember where.

Or was I just hallucinating again?
