Hint: it's in Utah, and the general location won't be difficult.

Morning Glory Arch, but it is in Negro Bill Canyon, across the river and south of the Park, isn't it?

Steve and Lumatic, you're in the ballpark.

Youngpeck, you're not, but still a good guess.

I think I need to identify it (according to the Park Ranger who named it at Arches), because I suspect not too many shots of it exist.

Located in Arches is a formation called Fiery Furnace. The walk through this formation is difficult and requires a park ranger's presence. This arch is one located in the Fiery Furnace.

The name of this formation is called The Window.

A great picture of a great arch! And I've been in the Fiery Furnace (long ago, when you could do it without an escort (!--and I wouldn't recommend that at all--it's easy to get lost in there). I obviously missed this one. I will have to catch it next time. And all who have been on the tour highly recommend it!

Thanks for stumping us! What else do you have?

What is the name of this roadway feature and where is it located?

I think #1204 is one of the "pig tail" bridges on Iron Mountain Road in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

We've been on that road and I remembered.

SteveH 02-26-2014 12:06 PM

I believe #1206 is Turret Arch, Arches National Park, UT.

Good eye, Steve. The angle that I used does a great deal to disguise the fact that it is the Turret.

#1208 is of the Grand Canyon, but if the view has a name, I don't know it, and can't find it.

Not paying attention and got beat out on 1204. And only 30 - 40 miles away on the best route to Mt. Rushmore.

It IS of the Grand Canyon.

It does have a name, and you've got to come up with it to win the cyber bunny of the day. ;-)

SteveH 02-26-2014 05:38 PM

OK, I believe it is "wotans throne".

The cyber bunny is yours.

Google wotans throne grand canyon, and you'll find many versions of my shot taken at Point Imperial on the North Rim.

It's another one of the "gotta get up in the dark, waaaaaay before dawn". shots. :)

SteveH 02-26-2014 05:56 PM

I can't believe with all the hints I have given no one's gotten #1130. Any more and I might as well just tell you.

I incorrectly identified the location as Point Imperial on the North Rim.

The correct location is Cape Royal on the Grand Canyon's North Rim. :blush:

Yea, I knew it had to be taken from the North Rim. The way I found it was Googled up a map of the GC, and then Googled specific pictures of all the points on the map. Sort of time consuming, but I'm retired, not traveling right now, so..........

I'm putting this one up again because it is so easy I cannot believe it hasn't been answered (is anyone trying?), and the hints so far are it is South of Death Valley, from Joshua Tree National Park, and of a major geological feature.
