You are getting very good at this. Only one technicality. In 2009, the name was changed to San Diego Botanical Gardens after the city of San Diego bought it from the private owners.

We were lucky enough to be there and experience the aroma of the Corpse flower in bloom. The picture of the lily pond shows my daughter-in-law and youngest grandson. I don't know who the old fart wandering off to the left is.

Your prize is this link where you can buy seeds to grow your very own corpse flower. Think how calming it would be to smell its aroma emanating from your dining room window sill. I imagine you may relax to the point of passing out.

Who would ever think there would be such a thing?

No takers on guessing this location in #1114? C'mon Sir, take a big guess!

OK, you want a guess, the peak is Pettit Peak, and the place is Tuolumne Meadows.

How's that for a WAG?

Very good Jim the name of the base was Hendricks field. It became inactive December 31,1945 over 10,000 pilots were trained here, at peck operation there were about 120 B-17's. In 1950 the first race was held on site and the first formula one race in the U.S was also held at this location. March 12-15 is the date for this years race event.Click image for larger version

This is sort of a famous view. It is of course in the West. What is it of, and where was it taken from?

Sounds like nobody will get it, even though I basically gave the name. This place is Big Sur, CA and the name of the peak is Cone Peak.

This is not a criticism, simply an observation.

We have gotten to the point where the western scenery pictures with no human made structures visible look like countless scenes I have seen in any of about 10 western states. That makes it a very laborious task to find the exact one unless I can say, "Oh yeah, I know that", even before I start looking.

I was at Sebring International Raceway a few weeks ago, watching a few test runs. Many people do not realize there is still an active airport, a motel, and a race track in operation. As an aside to Hendricks Field, the practice bombing range is also still active, nearby at Avon Park AFB.

ps: enjoyed talking with you and your husband before Christmas!

add edit: How fast were you able to tow through the hairpin curves? :-)

I agree with you: Without some really unique formation or structure, it's sometimes hard to decide where a given picture is.

But that opinion also leads immediately to another: One reason why the West is so popular among those with cameras essentially boils down to the distinction between taking pictures and doing photography. Yes, the West has lots of snapshot-taking opportunities, one after another by the hundreds, until they become all the same. But if you take the time to do it right, the West also affords the colors, the lighting and the locations for fantastic photography, as an examination of the photos at something like this group shows:
