‘Name that Place’ photo contest tests your Adirondack knowledge

How well do you know the Adirondacks?

Each day this week (July 27-31) we’re posting a photo of a “mystery location: to the Adirondack Explorer’s website.

You let us know where it is by leaving a comment in that post. Come back each day for a new photo/entry.

At the end of the week, we’ll draw a winner for a grab bag of Adirondack Explorer swag and books by locally renowned authors Bill McKibben and Phil Terrie. As a bonus, the first person who gets all 5 entries correct receives special recognition.


Melissa is a journalist with experience as a reporter and editor with the Burlington Free Press, Ithaca Journal and Fairbanks Daily News-Miner. She worked as a communications specialist for the Adirondack North Country Association and runs her own New York State Women owned Business-Enterprise Bootstrap Communications, which includes digital marketing, strategy and design. She enjoys hiking, camping and other outdoors activities, and spending time with her husband, their twin daughters, and rescue animals -- two dogs and a cat.

  10. Hi all! Thanks for taking part in this contest. Just a reminder that you need to go to adirondackexplorer.org and comment on the post there to enter the contest 🙂

  11. Buttermilk Falls, Raquette River

  12. Jack Valentine says:

    Upper Hudson River probably below Blue Ledges.

  13. Charlie S says:

    Buttermilk Falls is a good guess, just before the drop over the rocks where drownings are not too uncommon.
