    Default "Where in North America is this?" Section V

    This is the Fifth 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...

    (Inactive -- you can look, but not enter new posts!)
    Section I = 33 pages of places you might know
    Section II = 28 more pages of places and some REALLY gorgeous photographs!
    Section III = 28 more pages of places that might really stump you!
    Section IV -- 15 more pages, with some very tricky clues
    Section V -- 15 more pages of some very pretty and engaging places....
    Section VI -- 15 more pages with more of those "very creative" clues that are nearly as vexing as the images....
    Section VII -- Marked by some very clever clues and some VERY challenging puzzles spread over another 15 pages of places you might have seen in your travels in North America.
    Section VIII, started on September 22nd with mystery puzzles from a dozen or more states and some new players have joined the merry band of geo-wizards...working on another fifteen pages of puzzles.
    Section IX-- Some really beautiful and challenging puzzle mystery locations from all over North America found on another 15 pages.
    Section X -- Spanning nearly four months of puzzles of North American locations on 16 more pages.
    Section XI -- Started on March 14, 2010.
    Section XII-- Started June 11, 2010 with 20 pages of new geo-puzzles from around North America

    Section XIII-- Started July 29, 2014 is currently the Active Part of this Game/Contest

    Enjoy!

    This is not an perfect example of the kind of photo that works for this game, but I bet some of you'll know it anyway (as I am working on the navigation for the rest of the game...)

    Default Clue #1

    This shot is beautiful but it's also a baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa....d example of the kind of images that we like to include here.... And it's within 1/2 hour of the famous Las Vegas Strip.

    With that clue, it must be the Sheep Range in the DNWR north of LV.

    Default Excellent deduction!

    Yep, this is right south west of the visitor center and those are the Sheep Range in the background.

    I think I would be standing on Fremont St in Las Vegas.

    Default Are you detecting a theme herein?

    This one has 2-3 visual clues.... Can you identify them?

    Where is this? For extra credit (GLC -- do you feel lucky?) what is the street where this would be seen from?

    Default presumably

    I assume that's the Vegas Monorail.

    I can't quite tell what the partially hidden sign says or is, so I'll guess that this particular segment is somewhere along Paradise...

    Default My, but we are fast today!

    Michael,

    Excellent work!

    OK, the three visual clues:
    1) The crown-like sign is the top of the Las Vegas Hilton Sign
    2) That is a car from the Las Vegas Monorail
    3) The building in the background is the top of the Las Vegas Convention Center

    So this was taken on the corner of Paradise and Convention Center Blvd...
