National Park Mystery Photo 33: It Definitely Says "Parkitecture," But Where Is It?

Shakes painted Park Service brown can be found in many national parks...and national forests. But where are these?

The architectural trend towards romantic rusticity often is traced back to Gilbert Stanley Underwood and can be found throughout much of the National Park System. But where can you spot this example?

If you have no clue, check back tomorrow for the answer.


I hate bring a nit-picker, but the folks who said "Old Faithful Lodge" were wrong.  The Lodge and Inn are two different places.  The Lodge is at the opposite end of the Old Faithful area from the Inn.

Well, as quite a few folks have figured out, the shot is of the Old Faithful Inn in Yellowstone. Congrats to Markk1959 for getting the right answer in first. Tomorrow we'll show a larger shot of this section of the inn's roof.

Looks like Many Glacier Lodge in Glacier N.P.  Montana.

In addition, it is the roof exit to go up to the top of the hotel so they can raise and lower the flags

Well, we've had a few more correct answers. I suppose we could have made it a bit more difficult by asking, exactly where can you snap this photo. In the meantime, we're going to dig deeper into our photo albums for the next time.
