Summer Photo Fun: Name This Location!

8-7-12 610

We kicked off Summer Photo Fun 2014 earlier this week with a “Caption This” post so how about continuing with a “Name This Location” challenge? Let’s just say it will test either your world-traveler status or your observation skills, huh?

Now before you complain that I’m asking you to identify a rock outcropping, take a closer look. This is a very distinctive rock formation, isn’t it? Have you seen it before? Or maybe a photo of it?

So tell me, where were you when you saw this unique handiwork of our amazing Creator God? Name this location! The first person to guess correctly will win all bragging rights. Woohoo, huh? :)

“‘He who forms the mountains, creates the wind, and reveals his thoughts to man, he who turns dawn to darkness, and treads the high places of the earth—the LORD God Almighty is his name.’” Amos 4:13

  1. I posted the link to this post over on Facebook, and Melinda has guessed Utah. Good guess, but I’m afraid that’s not it. So who else will venture a guess? I bet some of you have seen this place!

    • Hi Cheryl, I immediately saw the man with “pointy hat” and the straight line of teeth and am surprised that everyone didn’t see that first thing, since he looks like he might be a character from Hobbits. I wish I could remember where I have seen it, but cannot…. First guess would be Colorado. then Arizona. Norma

      • Hi Norma, thanks for chiming in! Colorado and Arizona are both good guesses, but it’s actually in Wyoming in the northern part of Yellowstone National Park. Bet you guys drove past it more than once since you used to live in WY. We sure loved our visit to Yellowstone.

  2. Just had another guess come in over on Facebook. Pam guessed the Black Hills of South Dakota. Another very good guess, but that’s not it either. Someone will know this sooner or later! :)

  3. Sonya just guessed Colorado over on Facebook, but sorry to report that’s not the right location either. Looks like this is harder than I thought it was going to be! :)

  4. We’ve now had the guess of Arizona come in via Facebook. Thanks for trying, Mary, but that’s not it either! :)

  5. Sonya tried again on Facebook with Kansas, but that’s not it either. What a puzzle! :)

  6. We’ve had the guess of Scott’s Bluff Nebraska come in on Facebook. Sorry, Elece, that’s not it either! :)

  7. Cheryl – I have no idea where this rock formation is, but I’m going to guess it is in Arkansas. It make me feel better that some of your American born readers don’t know where it is either :)

  8. Is it Chimney Rock in Nebraska?

  9. Ron says it is in Western Oklahoma. Oh go on— tell us!

    • Sorry, Elece, tell Ron it’s not Western Oklahoma either :) You’re making me giggle now — begging me to tell :) Let’s give it awhile longer. Surely someone has seen this spot and will guess correctly soon :)

  10. Okay, since no one could come up with the correct guess yesterday, here’s a hint for you today: You can see this rock formation in one of our national parks. Which one? And where is it?

  11. Most of Yellowstone is in Wyoming, but there are parts in Idaho and Montana. I hope I can go some day. The rock formation looks like a face with a nose and row of bad teeth. Fun puzzle for us. Thanks!

    • Glad you enjoyed the guessing game, Elece. I had fun with it, too :) And I hadn’t thought about the formation looking like a face with bad teeth, but I can sure see those teeth now! Funny! I’ve always thought of it as looking like a church. Wonder what others see?

  12. I should have posted on here that It is in Yellowstone in Wyoming.

  13. Map showing location of the park in Wyoming in relation to the western U.S.

    Yellowstone National Park is located in the western United States. It spans 3,472 square miles (8,987 square km). Ninety-six percent of the park is located in the state of Wyoming, another three percent is in Montana, and one percent is in Idaho.
