You are in the Rocky Mountains.

Yellowstone! Or something..

It's really hard to see, but there are elk in the last picture. Tiny. In the middle.

Joshua Bender said...

Colorado Rocky Mountains - looks like the storm that went through this evening.

Sebastian said...

Glacier National Park maybe? Great pictures.

Brendan said...

Wisconsin Dells. No, wait. Utah.

In a Denny's in Tucumcari, NM with WIFI and using Google image...

Are you lost? I googled "miniature elk" but that didn't help. I think you are in Wyoming. Or maybe you are sitting at home in Madison and were kidding about going on vacation. If you really are lost, look for which side of the tree the moss grows on. Then turn on your GPS and it will tell you where you are.

Rocky Mtn National Park?

Charlie (Colorado) said...

Looks like you're on Trail Ridge Road, in fact.

Pete said...

I'm with Charles: Rocky Mountain National Park, Trail Ridge Road.

I was going to guess somewhere in Peru, but I suppose with the plethora of guessing of Rocky Mtn National Park, which seems spot on, since there are no elk up the Andes, I lost.

Ann, you are missed. Not by me, mind you, but by your readers. Hurry back -- but have a ripping good time until then.

P.S.: I've been covering the Pope's visit to World Youth Day on my blog. Here's a sample:

Quick

It's about the visual impact of the festivities.

Since you're into the visual and all. ;)

Cheers,
Victoria

Lars, Charles, Pete: Correct!

Aw man! Somebody answered before I could, and I was *so* proud to recognize Terra Tomah.

We went last July for a wedding held at the YMCA of the Rockies (fantastic place to stay, btw). From Trail Ridge Road we went up the Tundra Trail and then hiked from there up to the top of Sundance Mtn. Not bad, since we had a four-year-old with us!

While staying at the YMCA of the Rockies, my daughter complained about vacations at national parks. She wanted to vacation in cities. So the next year we did Chicago. As a result, she is moving to Chicago this week to work at inner city schools for City Year. This dad is nervious, however I still like the YMCA of the Rockies.

Bruce Hayden said...

That would have been my guess. The problem with most of the other guesses is that there aren't a lot of places in the continental U.S. where you can drive that far above tree line.

BTW, welcome to Colorado.

Beautiful photos. Landscapes, even breathtaking ones, are harder to photograph than one would think.

ziemer said...

don't worry, menlo bob.

it won't take long for her to figure it out, and give up such things.

and i'm not being an ass. i'm just an old man who has seen many people embark on the same paths i once did.

and seen them walk away as disappointed as i.

i know, you're real concern is about her safety, not that she's wasting her time; and i'm being frivolous.

to be frank though, i think the greatest danger is not her safety, but that she'll get sucked into the corps of professional do-gooders who wrongly believe they do more good than harm.

Menlo Bob said...

Thanks Zeimer, You'll appreciate the fact that the organization--City Year--worries that its members might be offended over having to wear the US flag as part of the standard outfit.

ziemer said...

isn't that lovely?

oh well, i'm sure everything will be fine.

of course, i'm a sagitarius. that's what we say no matter what goes wrong!

Oscar: Yes, mountains are actually not photogenic. They look grand in person, but reduced to a photograph, what's the difference between them and molehill? You have to find ways to show the scale or do something else with the shape. I was taking advantage of the dark clouds. If it had been a sunny day, I might not have been able to come up with any ideas for expressing "mountain."

I think picture 3 is great because it has some interest in the foreground, which none of the others have.
