National Park Mystery Photo 44: These Slickers are Not for Slackers

 Get ready to heave.

In which unit of the National Park System was this photo taken? What are these youngsters doing?

Readers who answer correctly will be eligible for our monthly prize drawing. This month the prize will be a Freedom of the Hills deck of cards from The Mountaineers. Each card features various mountaineering tips.

No cheating! If we catch you Googling or engaged in other sneakery of any description, we'll make you write on the whiteboard 100 times: "Due to the inclination of the moon's orbit and the resulting movement of the earth around the barycenter, and due as well to the perturbing influences on the earth's orbit by the other planets, the true sun is not always exactly on the ecliptic for a hypothetical observer at earth's center, but may be some arcseconds north or south of it."

The answer will be posted in tomorrow's Traveler. Meanwhile, we'll embargo that information so everybody can take a crack at it.


Treelizard, are you going to refine your answer?

Tom, you've nailed it down and can now rest on your laurels.

Tom, you're slowly piecing it together. But what are they doing??

Well, Tom provided a partial answer, but we're stickler for details, while volknitter has circled back and nailed it down.

OK, volknitter, so what were those kids doing when i took this photo?

You're in the right ballpark, Treelizard, but you need to get the park's name right and you need to tell what those youngsters are doing.

The home port of the USS Constitution is indeed Boston (the Charlestown Navy Yard, to put a finer point on it), but that's not where this photo was taken.
