Post 720

You are on Main Street in Sheridan, Wyoming.
You are driving North.
The pictures were taken on May 1, 2011 at 8:35 AM MDST (If Best Out West's clock is correct)

Hey Lumatic. I've passed this stump and the tree that sat atop the stump countless times. I went to College in the Adirondacks. I remember reading many years ago that it was the largest American Elm in the country. Can't speak to the accuracy of that statement but it was a "BIG TREE". The Inn adjacent it is was aptly called the Elm Tree Inn. Beautiful country up there but can get awfully buggy in the summer.

Sounds like all correct to me for post 720! The date on Heather's picture is misleading. It was a quiet MONDAY morning June the 20th early enough for lots of parking. We had overnighted there.

The tree and stump are now gone. But I think the Elm Tree Inn is still there. Elm Tree Inn was the haunt of bobsledders because the Mt. Van Hovenburg track was just up the hill.

Last I heard you could still take a tourist version of the bob run which starts a little lower on the track and uses 1930 vintage bobsleds.

No one can truly say they are an outdoors man until they have survived Adirondack blackflies.

OK, Here is a picture with proof I was there.

The bottom picture is taken from my rear view camera, you will note the two distinctive peaks in the background, that should help.

The top picture is me receiving a warning for driving too slowly.

Where did this incident occur.

It is a real area in Colorado
It is a reproduction western town located in the real town most people believe the fictional town is based on.

Since Lumatic brought up hot springs here is another hot spring. This privately run place boasts natural hot springs and a campground in a beautiful setting along a river. What is the name of the hot spring and what is the name of the river?

You are correct.
However I regret to inform you that forum rules allow only one chicken dinner in any 24 hour period.

I will post a few real pictures of the South Park area in a while.

No guessers yet? This is a wonderful place and one I would highly recommend. It's in the Northwest.

Upper middle is part of the real area named South Park viewed from the northeast on US 285 descending down from Kenosha and Red Hill Passes.

Lower Middle is the real city of Fair Play located in the real South Park

Bottom is South Park City Museum located in Fair Play

Not sure which is worse. The blackflies or the old woodsmans fly dope to keep them away. They are the pit bulls of the insect world. You can also take a trip up to the top of the ski jumps. Have never done it myself. The Adirondacks are great country.

Thanks for reminding me.
