Who can name this famous place in the East? Bonus points if you can name the two hills at left and center in the photo.

Bingo! This pic was taken from the observation tower on the South side of the town of Gettysburg between Warfield and Seminary Ridges. Picketts Charge was just to the North.

Another hint about #1055....it's in Colorado, and from that, y'all should have it in no time.

You got it! Beautiful waterfall just of the Scenic Hwy 149, with an easy drive to it, with a parking lot, and put toilets.

Ken, you're right! Treat yourself to a beer! Or maybe this time of year, something hot.

You can drive to this place but it's also adjacent to a famous hiking trail in the West. It was cold, rainy and windy there when I took these pics. On a nice day, it has wonderful views.

Where Is This?
 
1068 ... Looks like the Sisters Observatory (Dee Wright) SW of Sisters Oregon. The trail would be the Pacific Crest Trail.

Correct! A very interesting place... Dee Wright Observatory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It's in the United States, and it's the largest one in the world.

"...or maybe you don't want to see the second largest ball of twine on the face of the earth which is only four short hours away."

The world's largest ball of twine. Cawker City, Kansas. And the Griswolds missed it.

You've hit the nail on the head. SuEllyn even got to add some twine.

Here's another from the West. What is the specific location?

youngpeck 02-11-2014 09:05 AM

#1077: I'll take a guess that it's the Needles District in Canyonlands Nat'l Park.

That's correct, and boy was that fast!

Looks like it's just up the trail from the Elephant Hill trailhead. Attached here is a slightly different view from the same general area (although I must admit that so many of these formations look alike!).
