    Default "Where in North America?" -- Section II

    This is the Second section of a popular mind puzzle first brought to the membership by member Quebec Gen.

    General Rules of the "Where in North America is this?" Game
    1) Anyone can play -- just follow along and test your mettle about places found in North America.
    2) You'll need to be a registered member of this Forum if you want to contribute your own photographs and/or participate in the discussion for each place.
    3) You will need to have the ownership or usage rights to any photo that you post on this forum, as per the terms & conditions of Federal copyright law. If you post a photo that you do not own the rights to, Forum Management reserves the right to remove it. As a matter of practical use, we would expect that you would be posting only those photos that you or a close family member have taken.
    4) Every photo of a mystery place needs to be unique in some way -- And there should be "visual clues" in the photo to enable us to solve where the mystery location is...

    That looks a bit like Rocky Mountain National Park

    Yes, but it's not Rocky Mountain National Park.

    Default Maybe Glacier NP

    Great shot -- but not really sure where -- Is it in the States or Canada?

    But I'll give it to you ;-)

    It's the "Old Bryce town" opposite Ruby's Inn but I think it's part of their complex.

    It's in the United States, but not in a National Park.

    ........but having not traveled quite as extensively as some of you, it's all the inference I have oftentimes.

    I'll say somewhere in the Uinta Range of Utah. Relatively flat-lying strata, at above-timberline up top, and sculpted by alpine glaciers to form cirques, aretes, and tarns. Forested at slightly lower elevations.

    For any interested in glacial geomorphology, the curved cliff-face on the right is the headwall of a cirque, the walker is astride of an arete, and the small lake at lower elevation on the left is a tarn, itself below another cirque.

    PS--on edit, I have another thought. See next post.

    Default On second thought

    After further thought, I'll say somewhere in MT or WY along the Beartooth Highway. The tundra up top and the hiker, appearing to have reached that elevation without more than "short distance" gear and garb, are my indicators.

    There are few, if any, portions of the upper reaches of the Uintas reachable by lightly-equipped day-trippers, I believe.

    The Beartooth Highway is an incredible drive. But the photo isn't from that area. It's not nearly as flat as the photo on top of the Beartooths.

    Just in front of the hiker, the ridge is less than five feet wide. A lot of folks turn around at this point.

    Default Ok

    .....then I'm back to the Uintas in UT.
