I challenge you...

If you can accurately identify the exact location of this panorama....I will grant you one Zombie wish...anything you want:








And the answer is:

The New River Gorge National Park: The Main Overlook at Horseshoe Bend

Nobody got it. More to come. I'm loving the panorama tool in Photoshop CS 4

I vote for the Appalachian Trail somewhere in Virginia (I think south of Lexington) Am I close?

Dambala said...

close but wrong state....it's actually not on the A. trail. but you're in the general vicinity.

Monkey Hill?

Dambala said...

North Carolina.

Or West Virginia.

West Virgina

Is it part of the Blue Ridge Parkway? That's one of the prettiest drives anywhere in America.

Dambala said...

it is a little West of the BRP....which incidentally was a WPA project, but I'm sure you knew that Clancy.

Here's a hint....it's a National Park.

Dambala said...

The area you're looking at is called Horseshoe's Bend.

Clancy DuBos said...

OK, I Googled Horseshoe's Bend (yeah, I cheated after I read your last comment) and learned that Horseshoe Bend is in the Spruce Knob Seneca Rocks National Recreational Area (not the same as a national park, but who's quibbling, besides me). Interestingly, if you look at the area on Google maps, you might notice that "National" in National Recreation Area is misspelled as "Natiotional."

Oh, the things editors notice late at night...

BTW, I did not know that the BRP was a WPA project, but I'm not surprised. Most WPA projects are still goin' strong, like Tad Gormley Stadium and many other parts of City Park. Thanks for pointing that out. I've driven BRP a few times and it was always gorgeous.

That's interesting that Seneca Rocks came up....I actually camped out there one time. It's not Seneca.

It's the New River Gorge National Park.

Gah! I've actually kayaked that gorge a couple of times! I don't recognize it from that height.

- Most WPA projects are still goin' strong, like Tad Gormley Stadium and many other parts of City Park.

which brings us to an entirely different but prescient discussion. You think it's time for Obama to implement WPA 2.0? I got into argument about this the other night, I personally think we need it for at least 5 years....high speed rail, wind farms, solar farms...all those projects can eventualy be privatized down the road, but I think right now we gotta do something.
