Those look like Italian markings on the hulks in the foreground left. Italian Alps I reckon. I'm going for Aosta. Even though I'm not even sure there is an airfield there

I recognised the landscape as I passed through Aosta on the train a few years back. Had no idea there was an airfield there! Is that an old Italian Air Force C-54 lying there in bits?


Open House (or should I say 'Casa Aperta' / 'Maison Ouverte'?)

That and the terrain is what led me to guess Sardinia. Admittedly it's more like Corsica but that comes under French 'rule' (until they have THEIR referendum 'cos they hate the French)

As it's you, I42, I'm gonna say Canada? I appreciate that, if correct, that doesn't narrow it down a great deal

Aha, got you! Hook, line and sinker.

Contrary to popular belief, it does snow south of the 49th parallel.

Indeed but look at the neat snow clearance - footpaths, roads etc etc - so somewhere that gets a lot of snow often and is totally set up for it.

Pretty flat so maybe Wisconsin - ish....................

Yes, they’re certainly setup for snow, but it’s not Wisconsin. Much further south.
