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.


That is on the Old Faithful Lodge in Yellowstone National Prk

I'll take a guess....the Old chalet at Lassen Lovcanic National Park

It could only be the Old Faithful Inn.

Looks like the Old Faithful Lodge at Yellowstone

Isn't theat door on the northern side of the Ahwahnee Hotel in Yosemite?

Well, we've had three right answers, from Markk1959, Lawrence Caldwell, and Marty, but the image is not from either Lassen or Yosemite national parks. We'll keep the answer hidden so others can take a shot at it.

Old Faithful Lodge

Old Faithful Inn Yellowstone NP

Old Faithful Lodge? When I looked him up I did not realize he had done so many buildings in National Parks. A regular Mary Colter!

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.

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

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

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.

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.
