Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

PierreMundo - Yes, it is a lake and is in Arizona and is indeed Lake Pleasant. I flew over this lake hundreds of times since the airport/gliderport approach to Turf takes one over the lake. There are sometimes huge raft-ups (powerboats) and you can get high circling above them in thermals and even at 5000 ft AGL you can hear the music.

All yours...

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Thanks Arnd,
I have seen big parts of Arizona, but never been to Lake Pleasant. The environment, dry and no pinetrees made me think of Lake there.

Here a picture of another Lake in North America. Picture is taken from an Island with a very nice campground and a little golf course.

Where is it?

It looks like Champlain but could be any lake from The Finger Lakes, NY to Moosehead, Me. to Southern N.E.

Hi Smurphny,

You made a good gues. It is Lake Champlain. Picture is taken from Apple Island near Burlington, VT. Had a great time this summer driving the New England states.

It's yours.

Pierre

I actually thought it was the place where I keep my boat. We have a campground but we don't have a golf course One of the boats in the picture looks like that of someone I know. Well, here's the next pic (I hope Faster will be kind enough to make it larger again):
