Travel Photos — Where in the World 011

Hey! … does anyone still remember these?

I know, I know . . . it’s been a while.

As mentioned before, all the WitW photos are collected in THIS<<link SmugMug Gallery.  Each new post will identify the previous post’s photo. The poll at the end of this post is mostly to amuse and entertain (me), but I name the location of these photos along with a red herring or two. It’s fine if you look up the answer, and I won’t care much which name you vote for because, hey, you might want to amuse yourself as well. It’s open to multiple voting for people who like more than one answer. Let me know if multiple voting doesn’t work.

The photos in the previous post<<link showcased the Pikes Peak Highway<<link. For them interested in looking at it on Google Earth, here’s a screenshot of Google Earth’s street view. That’s close to the approximate location from where I snapped the first photo (the coordinates are in the lower right corner of the screenshots — click for a larger version).

I’m including a satellite view; the rocks are at the middle portion of the “W” formed by the switchbacks of the road.

Here we go with the next offering . . . I shot this photo (and subsequent photos) in October 2008.

Once more, this “Where in the World” is super-easy for anyone who has been following this blog for any length of time. By “following” I mean “reading”. Many people “follow” this blog (1,787 followers at last count), but I can count regular readers without using the totality of my digits.

As with the most recent WitW, lots of red rocks are to be seen.

Free Hint: this particular place was not a destination per see. Each time we visited, we were on our way to — or back from — somewhere else.

As before, I find that providing a B&W version can sometimes help readers figure out the location.

Side Note: yes, I’m still using the block editor and I’m still not loving it. It’s rare that I go a whole session without running into some glitch or other. Still, the frequency is less than it was, mostly because I’ve learned to navigate around the hazards of using the block editor. 

Of course, some readers are not helped by monochrome offerings, but might be helped by artistic renditions . . .

No one asks me if I paint these myself . . . the answer is “no”.

There are other views one can enjoy and perhaps use to narrow down the location . . .

I think it would be nice building a house on one of these flat areas . . .

Not sure why I gravitate to monochrome offerings in these posts . . .

I have one more photo which might help in identifying the place … you know, if you could recognize the town in the background . . .

Oh, wait . . . the town is just to the right of where the camera was pointing. Too bad that, but really, I don’t think it would have helped much, but here’s the B&W version . . .

. . . amazing; simply amazing!

I’m going to put a few extra versions in the gallery below the poll.

Before we get to the poll . . .

. . . IF you like to read, and IF you like to vote, THEN you might consider reading and voting for your favorite of the current three “Seven Deadly Sins” Challenge Stories. Links to the stories and the poll for voting for “SDS Greed Stories” are HERE(link). Votes will be accepted until  Noon (Central Time) on Thursday, September 16th, 2021.

And now, here’s the gallery of the above photos. The poll is after the gallery . . .

. . . and here’s the poll . . .

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
