Where Am I? — Read the Fine Print

Examine the photo and clues below to pinpoint this location. Choose right and you could win a $100 BSA Supply Group gift card.

DO YOU EVER FEEL as if you just need to get away? After another busy holiday season, nothing sounds more peaceful than retreating to the wilderness.

What are you waiting for? Grab your snowshoes and set off on an out-and-back jaunt filled with breathtaking views of this state’s own Grand Canyon. While its size falls short of the real thing, you won’t be disappointed with the views in this rocky gorge. 

Be prepared to ease your mind with the quiet hush of fresh snowfall and the sound of rushing water from the canyon’s ice-crusted river.

But before you slip into a relaxed stupor, focus your sights on one of (at least) five frozen waterfalls reaching up to 300 feet tall. Ice crystals hang mid-air, shimmering in the winter sunshine.

Keep the adrenaline going by walking along the fir- and spruce-framed “rim” trail, giving you an even better view of the immense riverbed below. If you don’t already feel dwarfed by the wild setting, you’ll feel like you’re stepping onto the set of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids when you stand in a grove of towering white pine trees.

Sound like your idea of a “break,” too? Join me—but first, Where Am I?
