    It's not Darlington Shelter and it's not in New Jersey. Good guesses - keep trying!

    My first guess would be the old Carter Gap Shelter in NC.

    It is (obviously) an old-style shelter but no, it's not the old Carter Gap Shelter.

    Looks like Deer Park Mountain shelter to me,,, I believe that's the one,,,,,,,, whichever one I'm thinking of,, it's approx. 4 miles south of Hot Springs, NC. Where's my prize!!! I'm sounding pretty cocky, & I'm not even 100% sure.

    No, it's not even in North Carolina. If you look closely, you'll see that the type of trees surrounding the shelter are not typical of NC except for the very higher elevations.

    Looks like it's a shelter in some state park. The layout of the half sawn logs in front scream state park and there appears to be a picnic table in the background. Is this shelter on trail? or do you have to take a blue blaze side trail to get to it?

    It's not Gifford Woods State Park Shelter and you're correct, the shelter is not "on trail"

    Doesn't look much like Pickle Branch to me, although that is half a mile off the AT is south central Virginia.

    Default Mystery shelter

    Umm...I know I'm not eligible, but I'm also stumped.
    Is it on an old section of AT in a certain New England state that's now blue-blazed?

    Hi Deb - the reason you're not eligible is because you know where I've been in the last 2 weeks.

    And that's where the shelter is from.

    And since you're not eligible, I won't answer your question!
