Here is a challenge, easy for the right person. Perhaps hard for others.

As the originator of Which Aerodrome? MK-1, I am happy to plot a course away from aerodromes on the present thread.

BTW, the missing second airfield in v3m's challenge was Hayward Executive Airport, Hayward, CA. This was not clearly spelled out.

I agree with your plot.

I just spent days driving through parts of the US which could qualify. Photo could be Calif, Colorado, Utah, northern New Mexico just for a start. Pretty country [2100 miles of it].

Yes, finfly, you are in the correct area. Sort of toward the eastern / central (north-south) part of the area you quote.

I don't know why my green light was on.. I've been away from the thread for half an hour ... and going away again.

Boulder, CO? Flatirons?

Oddly, it looks like Mt McKinley, with far more trees and civilization.

Eastern side of the Rockies looking West.

I've always wondered what people traveling in covered wagons across Kansas first thought when they saw the Rockies arise and loom over the horizon.

"I think I'll stop on this side, thank you very much" seems like one of the milder expressions that would spring to mind.

OH if correct.

Yes, Mr. Miles. Those are the 5 Flatirons in Boulder Mountain Park, Boulder, Colorado.

I, too, wonder what the explorers and then settlers thought when they saw the Rockies looming up. By 1850 or so, when my great grandfather went to California, they knew of an easier route though southern Wyoming. I have the binoculars which he is said to have carried on that trip.

The woman's name is NOT Susan. The bus probably goes to the depot in downtown Boulder. The picture was taken in early 1959. The street in the foreground is Baseline Rd ... exactly 40 degrees north latitude.

Well, me Queen. Post something. That would beat the content of most of us out.

Jetsy -- I recognize a blue box with a white question mark in the middle, and it's on my computer screen.

Bad link or open house.

Interesting my first hit was New Zealand, followed by Canada but I don't think Phillips 66 has got to either of those countries.

Open House - regrettably
