National Park Mystery Spot 32: At the Mouth of a Feeder


Mystery spot 32 is a structure in a national park. Using the clues below, identify the structure and the National Park System unit in which it is located.*

It's bad luck to be stuck by a Bowie or buck.

The one the golden dollar girl slept in probably looked like this one.

If it takes one to raise one, these could have raised three.

Located at the mouth of a feeder of a famously roiled feeder of a river that is not a feeder.


Bonus clue, no extra charge:

Circles linger.


* No Googling!  If we catch you cheating, we'll make you write on the whiteboard 100 times: "The second, although once defined as a 60th of a 60th of a 24th of the period of the earth's rotation, is now officially defined  as the duration of 9,192,631,770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the cesium 133 atom, provided that the cesium 133 atom is at rest and approaching the theoretical temperature of absolute zero, and that corrections are made for ambient radiation."

We'll reveal the answer and explain the clues tomorrow. In the meantime we'll embargo the answer and let everybody take a crack at this puzzle.


Sorry, the mystery spot is not Bent's Fort.

Is it Bent's Fort ?

Well son of a gun!

I usually never win anything.  The only thing I ever won before was a 50 pound bag of dog food and we didn't have a dog.  (But the neighbor's dog enjoyed it.)

Lee Dalton had a dawns-the-light moment and came up with the correct answer. Nice going, Lee.

And in the meantime, I have no idea whatsoever, other than maybe a wild guess that it involves Knife River???????

Whoa!  The Mandan lodges at Knife River?  Circles . . . . Tributary rivers . . . . Hmmmm.

Eric Nelson has nailed it. Nice going, Eric.

I'm going to go with earthlodges at Knife River Indian Villages NHS.
