"Tall is too small," the barista said,
"Starbucks  recommends the medium instead. "

What Hoover hammered out of the park
Was a curveball with a generous arc.

The Venus you see through your naked eye's lense
Shines like a star that has no friends.

We'll reveal the answer and explain the clues in tomorrow's Traveler.


Well I'm throwing in the towel. Work is over and I'm heading to my internet-less home. Congrats quizmeister....I'm probably going to cry tonight.

Alas, RangerLady, it's not Tonto National Monument. In fact, the mystery spot is not a National Monument at all. And it isn't in Arizona, either.

The Quizmeister has been known to slip in a puzzle now and then that requires syllogistic reasoning.

Thanks for the hint Tomp! My brain is rather fuzzy by now so that might help. But I still have no clue so here comes another random guess...Tonto NM! (And since  tonto means "dumb" it is completely fitting to how I feel)

Not Great Basin National Park.

ILoveRoadTrips has nailed it.  Good work.

We need to clarify something here. Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument has been submitted as an answer several times today, but it is not a unit of the National Park System  It is co-managed by the National Park Service (with BLM), and the part of Grand Canyon-Parashant that the Park Service manages is a component of Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
