March-April Where Am I? winner announced


After the tough January-February version of "Where Am I?", the March-April challenge was a walk in the park.

Readers agreed. We received 319 correct answers—almost double the number from the previous issue. Let's go over the clues:

  • We told you the waterfall shown above was from a national park, which narrowed it down to the 58 U.S. national parks.
  • We included the waterfall's height (60 feet) and the type of rock found there (sandstone).
  • Finally, we mentioned the trail that loops around the falls and the "vernal pools that draw breeding salamanders."

Those clues guided many readers to the right answer: Brandywine Falls at Cuyahoga Valley National Park south of Cleveland.

We took the 319 correct responses and used a random number generator to find our winner: Linda Wurstner, a troop committee member in Helena, Ala.

Linda gets a $100 gift card to the BSA's Supply Group, which she tells Scouting magazine will be used for supplies for her son's troop. Congratulations, Linda!

There's no "Where Am I?" contest in our May-June issue, but look for a new challenge—and a new chance at a $100 gift card—in our September-October issue.
