Montgomery Writes

WHERE ARE YOU? Getting the general answer on this one is pretty obvious, but we need you to site the specific location. There’s about 40 miles of terrain to cover if you go out searching for this beautiful spot. This photo is via Flickr.

One winner will be randomly selected from all correct answers received by March 10.
Peter Chung of North Potomac identified the good ship Cap’n Crabby in the Greenbrier Local Park. The park follows “The Journey of Raindrop” and visitors can learn about watersheds, Maryland geography and wildlife of the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay areas while they’re playing.
