    Default Worming in....

    I got it! The Fort is Fort Montgomery at Rouses Point, NY on Lake Champlain. And here's a photo to prove it!

    And the dog racing park might be the one in Phoenix?

    Yes, Fort Montgomery built in 1844.

    The race track is in Goodyear west of Phoenix, it is called the Phoenix Trotting Park. It was featured in the movie No Code of Conduct (which I haven't seen).

    Default Oh come on....

    Ya gotta give us a little more of a visual hint about where it might be....

    On the basis of the trees -- California foothills -- Gold Country maybe?

    By the way.... are you a CAL graduate -- (username?) I am an alumn -- 1978-Environmental Sciences

    Default Yep!

    1970 L&S Computer Science (later department was folded into EE CS). Go Bears!

    Not California.

    Here's a photo taken a couple miles from this spot.

    Default The photo doesn't fit

    I was thinking it might have been the log cabin that the first territorial government for Colorado met in Colorado Springs, formerly called Colorado City, but that's the wrong river.

    And, indeed... Go Bears!

    Default Wait you took that photo today?

    So, it's got to be close to Denver.... hmmmm

    I was thinking it could be the Burgess cabin on the property of the Air Force Academy -- but there are too many trees....

    It must be within 50 miles of Denver -- but I don't know how to find it....

    Is that the Josie Bassett Morris cabin in Dinosaur National Monument?
