    Sticky: Correct on all counts!

    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...

    And yes, that's quite true. Nothing in that area fits the other clues. Surely there must be some other canal...

    Sticky: Crazy Kayakers

    I've never set foot (or any other body part) in a Kayak. The mere notion of doing an "Eskimo Roll," even in tropical waters (much less in the arctic), quite frankly terrifies me. For those who can...

    That was a very good guess! I'm glad my clue worked as intended. I wasn't sure if I was being too subtle--or too obvious! The Hill Country makes a great day trip out of Austin or San Antonio, and it...

    I drove AZ 264 any number of times before I first discovered Coal Mine Canyon. Back in 2016, I was off on a week-long road trip, driving some of the routes that I planned to use in my book. That was...

    Sticky: Look for the Windmill

    Good job, George; Coal Mine Canyon is the answer.

    This is not what you'd call a well-known attraction. The canyon itself is on the Hopi Reservation, but the rim, which includes the best...

    You mean the cone-shaped peak on the left? That's actually Mt. Scott, but it's not well-known, so the name alone isn't likely to ring any bells. The clue was the fact that it's an obvious...
