More than 2,300 of you — from all over the state — recognized the scene in the September photo. It is a section of the restored fort at Fort Macon State Park on Bogue Banks, Carteret County. It vies with Jockey’s Ridge as North Carolina’s most-visited state park.  The Battle of Fort Macon was fought here in March and April 1862. Nearby is a swimming beach. The park is open year-round. The winner, whose correct answer was selected at random from all the submissions, was Frankie Livingston of Rowland, a member of Lumbee River EMC.
