Very difficult when they're in a glass by the bed.

Where on Earth ... is everybody? Out searching for AGP's location on foot?

First thought was Dunn's River. Second though was, "No, too many kids, not enough trees, not enough water."

TB - can't fault your logic.

I was also wondering where everyone was.

I was thinking Langkawi but, on reflection, think it is too large an area. Similar geography though.

And for FE21 (two to go from 19) my assessment is:

Lots of snow in the winter, but below 60 latitude because of the growth of the spruce. Non-regulated water = no hydropower plants downstream. People use life jackets: Not in Scandinavia (Finland and Sweden would have been the options). Not in Russia (boat, outboard and lifejackets speak against it). Must be in Canada, maybe in the US. OR in Chile.

So: First stab: Canada.

AGPW: Well knew that (almost). Different geology. Harder stone here. And looked somewhat different (in Canaima) last time I swam there.

Think most of the rocks are red in Sedona, and also wrong continent.

I think it is Finland, probably east of Helsinki in the archepelago, and photo taken stupidly late in the day, during June.



Sorry, I was answering flying eagle21 - see how easily old fools like me can be confused when there is more than one challenge running

It's not Britain, Sirikit, but this country isn't noted for it's sunshine record either.
