‘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 is currently digital editor for Adirondack Explorer, overseeing both the Explorer's website and its community forum the Adirondack Almanack. She enjoys hiking, camping and other outdoors activities, and spending time with her husband, their twin daughters, and rescue animals -- two dogs and two cats.

    Upper Hudson River

  14. Charlie S says:

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