    Sticky: Well done!

    The Grand Canyon rafting trip happened a few years before I figured out how to get down to Diamond Creek. The rafting trip was fabulous; eight days on the river with a group of 25 people, using a...

    Sticky: One more clue:

    Driving down the road (which is obviously descending), there's a predominate peak that grows larger and larger util it completely fills your field of vision. The peak has a name reminiscent of it's...

    Sticky: A gorgeous hotel, AND a hot spring waterfall? That's quite a package!

    It looks seriously awesome. I slept in a tent in a campground the last time I was in Banff, but we most definitely admired the Fairmount Banff Springs Hotel when we drove past it. Now that I'm aware...

    Sticky: More clues

    Okay, so let's sum up what we know about this place. It's not a hike. It's a place you can drive to, even in fairly large trucks. There's a parking area with sheltered picnic tables at the end of the...

    Can't win 'em all! That was a terrific little photo quiz, and in the course of ciphering those out, I really had my eyes opened. So much of the best of Yellowstone is "off the beaten path," you...

    Some clues, that should help narrow down the location by providing some context. These three photos, including the petroglyph panel, were taken one after another during the space of a single minute....

    I reckon I got a little bit off-topic with that last one, though I must admit that it was fun (for me, at least) to resurrect those old photographs, and weave together my memories of that long ago...

    Well, are you guys gonna share the location of your cool/hot springs waterfall, or do the rest of us have to keep guessing? ;-)

    Sticky: Let's finish up with Yellowstone

    Okay, time to close this out (bearing in mind these are merely my best guesses):

    #1: Spasmodic Geyser (I love the name!)

    #6: Anemone Geyser (or possibly Little Anemone?)

    Sticky: A partial solution (heavily mineralized)

    Full disclosure: I too love Yellowstone, but I've only been there once, and it was for two days, rather than two weeks, and that was at the tail end of a two-month road trip to Alaska and back, when...

    Good job! I figured somebody would probably recognize these; they're really close to Albuquerque, and so easy to get to. All three of these Spanish missions were built around the same time, in the...

    I'll take a stab at it. The first picture looks like somewhere in the Midwest, maybe Missouri? The sign in the front is hard to make out, but if I blow it up in my browser I think I see "Walt" on...

    Sticky: Jungle Petroglyphs

    This next set of petroglyphs has quite a story attached. I won’t make you guess the location. In fact, I’ll even show you a map pinpointing just exactly where they were, because the location is a...

    Sticky: Get your kicks, somewhere on Route 66

    It has to be somewhere on Route 66, in one of the towns that's trying to draw tourists with kitschy old cars and whatnot. Seligman, Arizona comes to mind; they have plenty of vehicles with eyeballs...

    Sticky: Zipping right along!

    The V-shaped thing looks like a cotter pin. Or maybe a clothes pin, but there aren't any petroglyphs (that I could find) named after any kind of pin, so I took a closer look at the V-shaped thing and...

    Yes, it's a canal boat (barges are for cargo; this old thing was for passengers).
