March-April ‘Where Am I?’ contest location—and winner!—revealed

It’s a peculiar vision to see snow-capped mountains and dusty, hot sand all in the same line of sight. But these two geographic elements intertwine at the secret destination in the March-April “Where Am I?” contest.

The location? The Great Sand Dunes National Park and Preserve, 35 miles north of Alamosa, Colo.

We received 949 votes from readers, and we randomly selected number 585 as our winner.

Jonathan Alfaro (No. 585), a First Class Scout from Silver Spring, Md., submitted a correct guess, which means he will receive a $100 Supply Group gift card. Congratulations, Jonathan!

January-February ‘Where Am I?’ contest location, winner revealed

You might need to put on a jacket if you spend too much time studying the mystery photo from the January-February “Where Am I? — Freeze Frame” contest. The frosty scene appears to have stumped many of readers last month.

Out of 208 guesses, lucky reader Ben Lake of Georgetown, Texas, (number 92) takes home the $100 Supply Group gift card with the correct guess: Gulf Hagas, described as the “Grand Canyon of Maine.”

Gulf Hagas is a popular summer hike, but it also offers plenty to winter adventure-seekers.
