This is one of many that "litter" the landscape. Some are nearly as big as a 2-bedroom house and provide a shady spot to enjoy the view under the mid day sun. I'm sure someone will recognize the spot instantly. What do that call this area? Click image for larger version

Today's hint on #801....this is on the shore of a lake, which by the definition of the word "lake", has two names.

#813 looks like Balanced Rock, Lees Ferry, Arizona.

We have another winner. About 75 miles south of Page on US 89A is the turnoff at Marble Canyon to Lee's Ferry and the location of a campground. Lee's Ferry is thought of as the beginning of the Grand Canyon. These rocks are located just a couple of miles from the Marble Canyon junction. Technically they are erosion remnants. They may have broken loose from the bluffs above and settled on the softer sandstone. Over the eons, the rock protected the softer material directly below from rain, but runoff and wind worked to carve out a column that these rocks now perch on. In time, the column will reduce to the point where it can no longer support the boulder and the process will begin again, one grain of sand at a time.

Time for one that might be more of a challenge (I hope). There are a few clues in the picture that should narrow down its location. What's the name of the body of water? Click image for larger version

You are quite correct. I was in Utah for business, finished up and was wandering around and found it.

#818 is a river in the North, probably Canada or Alaska?

Good observation. I will agree it is above the 49th parallel which pretty much rules out Branson and the Mississippi. Even by Texas standards that's a whole lot of real estate. Does the whatchamacallit in the foreground help narrow it down a bit?

I believe the "whatchamacallit" is a sort of fish trap used by the Alaska natives to catch pink salmon which they smoke and use for dog food, so based on all of that, I'm going to guess the Yukon River?

Yes, it is a fish trap for catching salmon... It's not the Yukon, I may be incorrect about this but I believe all the riverboats presently serving the Yukon have side paddle wheels. This boat and it's siblings are sternwheelers.

OK, my last guess is going to be the Skeena River in BC, Canada.

It does appear that sternwheelers were used on the Skeena, but I'll narrow it down a bit. It's not in Canada.
