Where am I in Virtual Big Bend?
« on: July 18, 2009, 03:42:54 PM »
I thought we could try a Where am I? thread that requires all the pictures to come from the
most excellent website: VirtualBigBend.com created by Vista Grande (aka David Locke).

At times it will have more of a “Where’s Waldo?” element to it than park knowledge. The hope is that park knowledge will be gained, and interests will be developed during the search.
If it generates more site traffic, and if we sometimes click on ads to develop some extra coinage for David,..well OK…I’m good with that. If no one is interested in playing then I'll just go to BiBe and lick my wounds. I believe that's called win-win. :icon_smile:

Happy searching, and a "tip O' the hat" to Chisos Muse for starting us on these Where am I quests.

Where in Virtual Big Bend am I?

Are you sure it was me? I thought it was Roy? Hell, I can't remember stuff anymore, or at least it's that "selective" memory thing!  :icon_lol:

LOL...thanks Marty...funny thread!  It's interesting you picked the pano you did.  That was a difficult one to put together and one of my first.  I literally had to isolate each stick and beam and reconstruct the ceiling as accurately as possible to make it look natural.  I shot that one in Dec 2002, my first "Virtual Big Bend" trip.  I shot it with a Canon G4 camera with a 180 Raynox lens adapter and a make shift pano head.  Not the most ideal set up.  Come a long way since that one.

Ok, I guess I waited long enough, I'll try to kick start this thread one more time. Black Peaks looking northwest at the Rosillos.

Looking down from the edge of the south rim.  I'm guessing just off of NE4.

Looking down....

   I've quoted the part that you got correct. Keep trying.

I'm not sure I even know this one :icon_lol:

Looking down and zoomed OUT so maybe even David needs to revisit his site to recognize it. :icon_smile:

That's making it way too difficult. I went through a half-dozen usual suspects, but had no luck. :icon_redface:
