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.”

Where Am I? July-August 2012

July-August ‘Where Am I?’ location—and winner!—revealed

Researching far-off destinations for the “Where Am I?” contests is one of my favorite things to do while on the job. Why? Because I always find myself in awe of how many cool places exist in our great nation.

Take, for instance, the secret location of the July-August challenge: Effigy Mounds National Monument in Iowa. As a midwesterner, I was surprised that I’d never heard of it before! And it appears that I wasn’t the only one: this contest had far fewer entries than normal, only 152 guesses.

New Jersey Scouter Jo Ann Marucci was randomly selected as the winning entry with the correct answer. Congrats, Jo Ann!

Can you guess where I ended up in the September-October “Where Am I?” challenge. Take your best shot.

As always, the same rules apply: Read the clues, examine the photo, and submit your guess. On Oct. 22, we’ll randomly select a correct guess to award one winner a $100 Supply Group gift card.

Good luck!
