Yeah, right. You have been all over the map....Tx/La, Monticello, Chicken, etc.

That's the historic brick tower that is atop Mt Constitution in Moran St Park, on Orcas Island, Washington. The mountain peak in the distance I think is Mt Baker.

Yes, but my picture postings in Colorado have been mostly from one area.

Your are correct. The mountains to the right of Mt Baker are another set of those ubiquitous peaks named twin sisters. The humpback Island in the foreground is Lummi Island.

Whitmore falls on Hensen Creek near Lake City.

There 22.34 falls in Colorado that look almost like that. The fraction accounts for those that look sorta like but not almost.

On #416 having no idea where the abandoned tunnels were, I tried doing some searches and only came up with train tunnels. Then, you gave no additional clues, so for me at least, it was a dead end.

I think we might also need some more clues on the picture above.

Here's a very popular tourist attraction in the North country that most everyone who's gone North of the border has seen.

I made a researched guess in 442. Did you see that?

#416 There are several tunnels on this major east west interstate route. The route itself was rerouted around the tunnels because they could not keep up with the traffic. The original route is a toll road which preceeds the official interstate route designation and is known by a now obsolete term I'm sure there must be some boomers out there that traveled this route. I first traveled this route in my father's 1950 Dodge Coronet then in a 1957 VW beetle named Wolfgang. At the time seeing another VW was an uncommon event accompanied by much hand waving and light blinking. The bug had a sunroof and I would stand up in the sunroof and wave franticly. By this time my sister and I had strictly demarked territories and a territorial violation was immediately accompanied by a protest filed with my parents in the front seat. We lived in the Bronx and our destination was near what I affectionately called "Pissburg".

I guess I missed it Ken. Sideling Tunnel on the old Pennsylvania Turnpike is correct. You're cooking on the big burner

527

This is Bishop Castle. It is being constructed by a single man. It is west of Colorado City, CO in the mountains on Hwy 165. I have never visited myself. I have always intended to, but it is in an out of the way location about a 4 hour drive from where I live. We never seem to go south through that general area when we are not in a hurry to get to some destination. If you go the official website and open the about tab, you will read the story of how it came to be and how even today it is a work in progress.

This lighthouse is in the Northeast. Where is it, and what is it's name?

Here is a video about Jim Bishop. He is as much an attraction as his castle he built himself. He is harmless, but if you decide to go you might want to leave the kids behind.

My kids are in their forties, they have to explain offensive stuff to me.

Time to awaken the thread again.
I can't seem to get away from the light house theme.

This one is in the Northwest.




One shot below is an aerial shot (I used my jet pack)
The one with the branches is taken from the shore.

What is the name of the lighthouse?
What is the name of the island?
