Thanks Jim2 for reviving this thread!

Tuff Canyon?

I know I'm correct, so here is the next one.....



My only guess on this one is Trap Spring going west on the trail coming back from Mule Ears spring?

Not Trap........That would be Onion Spring.

Hoping to revive this old thread just because it's one of my favorites.

So, where am I, or rather where was I when I took this photo? (Some of you long timers here will probably know instantly so maybe answer with a Lat/Long so the newbies can still have some fun or at least go map exploring with your answer.  ;D)

Looking up the chimney at homer
If other countries on the planet want to see America suffer and ultimately destroyed, who are they cheering for right now?  Trump, or the leftist democrats and their media supported hate machine?

That would be it. Lookin' up the chimney.

Anybody know why there would be an electrical box set into the stone of the fireplace? Certainly they didn't have electricity out there back then did they?

Regardless, Flash your turn, got any stumper photos for us?

I believe the rod in the picture is used to hold the two opposite sides together.  Like a stringer in a roof.

According to John Jameson's "The Story of Big Bend National Park", the Rio Grande Electric Cooperative began generating power to most of the park in 1953.  Rio Grande Village didn't get power until 1960.  Castolon got power the following year.

Wow, so i get a point for guessing correctly. If we're playing by the rules of Balderdash, then ElHombre also gets a point because bkrier guessed his wrong answer.  ;)

Okay, my turn you say. Well here goes...  :eusa_eh:



Where might Flash be?  :eusa_think:
