National Park Mystery Photo 43: What's In Store?

This isn't wine.

In which unit of the National Park System was this photo taken, and what does it depict? We'll give you a hint: It's not wine.

Readers who answer correctly will be eligible for our monthly prize drawing.

The answer will be posted in tomorrow's Traveler.

No cheating! If we catch you Googling or engaged in sneakery of any description, we'll make you write on the whiteboard 100 times:

The 34-letter word "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" of Mary Poppins fame is thought to have been derived from a combination of the concepts super-  (above), cali-  (beauty), fragilistic-  (delicate), expiali- (to atone), and docious-  (educable). Although this can be taken to have many different meanings, such as "atoning for educability through delicate beauty," it was said to mean "something to say when you have nothing to say" in the Mary Poppins context.  Some people with nothing better to do have learned to spell this word backwards, which is suocodilaipxecitsiligarfilacrepus.


Ed-123, richp39, and Lisa from Wichita KS have nailed it too. Good job.

In all seriousness, Eric, i agree that your guesses were well-reasoned. 

No, not Fort Niagara Carole...

Fort Niagara?

I'm now on Lunch break   : )
For the record, although it took me eight guesses (and helped others by narrowing down the possibilities), all were perfectly reasonable and defendable guesses regarding where such a picture may have been taken.

Well they were the only powder kegs I think I've ever seen in an NPS site, so without Google, that's my only guess. I'm so terrible at the Mystery Photos

Maybe if you've seen one of those kegs, you've pretty much seen them all?
