Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

kwaltersmi has it, and may have been there. This is part of Rock Island State Park and the building is a boathouse with a great hall above. This structure was built by Chester Thordarson as part of a private vacation retreat. It went to the State of Wisconsin after his death.

Your turn to post, kwalters!

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

I don't have access to my photo collection until this evening, so this will have to do. Someone will probably recognize the "skyline":

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Columbus' first landfall in 1492 was San Salvador in the Bahamas. It doesn't look anything like the volcanic island in the Virgins.

The story goes that Columbus named Virgin Gorda (Fat Virgin) because he thought it had the profile of a reclining female. My guess is this is what the "columbus" clue was about. Still a guess on my part!

We're in the right area (Caribbean) and this is getting closer to the name. Yes, this is St. somewhere...but where?

The peak rising in the right of the photo is second place and this time not a "St." somewhere.

Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Is it St. Eustatius, with Saba in the background?
