Can you identify National Park Mystery Spot 20 using just these clues?

They traveled this way during the fray, praying the wolf packs would fail to find them.

Whether it be wide or narrow, it's still the business end of the arrow.

A visitor center, yes, but no bridge to a key will you see.

Check back with Traveler tomorrow for the answer and an explanation of the clues.


The Trail of Tears?

Nope, not the Trail of Tears.

Is it Rocky Mountain NP's Arrowhead Lake Area?

Russel cave?

Sorry, Matt; it's not Russell Cave.

Going out on a limb with this. If the "wolf pack" is a group of WWII submarines...and no bridge to a key, could be golden gate... so it may be Fort Point at Golden Gate National Recreation Area.

Fort Point National Historic Site is a very good guess, Matt, since it integrates several of the clues in an ingenious way. The wolfpacks referred to in the clue are indeed groups of WWII-era German submarines, and you "got the point" too. But Fort Point is not the answer. Wrong side of the continent, in fact. Give this some more thought, Matt. I like the way you think.

Cape Hatteras?

Correct side of the continent Matt, but that's about it.

I'm going to guess Cape Point at Cape Lookout National Seashore

Thanks to Matt and Bob's clues, I think I got it. Patriot's Point at Fort Sumter.

Sorry, RangerLady, it's not Cape Point.

Eric, remember that the mystery spot is in a national park (which Patriot's Point, home of the WW II carrier Yorktown, is not)

its Dry Tortugas National Park in the Keys

Then I'm going with my second guess of Elliot Key in Biscayne National Park. After that I have no idea! YOu picked a good one Bob

Nope; not Dry Tortugas.

RangerLady, you are ever so close.

ADAM KEY in Biscayne National Park

You've got the right park, riverotter and Rangerlady, but you're not going to get this one by naming keys until you run out of keys.

Convoy Point, Biscayne

You travel in a convoy to avoid the wolfpack.

OK...since it's near the visitor center and you can see Elliot and Adams Key, I'm going with Convoy Point

You've got it, Matt. It's Convoy Point at Biscayne National Park. I'm going to give RangerLady an assist. Check back tomorrow for an explanation of the clues.
