Yep, that's it. Note how wide the river is north of the canyon, before it gets funnelled into that narrow gorge. If you ever want a life altering experience rafting either the Alsek or Tatshenshini rivers through the coastal range will give you some new perspective. Mt. Logan is only about 100 km from there and you are on the fringe of the world's largest nonpolar icefields. The rafting tours down the Alsek have a helicopter fly their clients over Turnback Canyon when they reach it.

Ok, my previous post was suposed to be coordinates to a giant cover of Maxim Magazine with Eva Longoria on the cover in the middle of the desert. I don't know if it is a hoax or if the satalite images just aren't up to date.

Lets try this one instead. This is easy, just post what is seen at these coordinates:

5220'10.91"N 011'43.28"W

Its an Avro Lancaster Bomber of WWII vintage returning from an airshow as I recall.

It looks like the Maxim cover was only there for a while and was since updated with new imagery, a google search for Maxim cover Primm Nevada will give you an idea of what used to be there.

I was wondering if you pulled it because it was too racey

The two Castles are right. My wife and I also visited the castles in Fussen Germany on our honeymoon and are going to Disney Castle in March!

My interest in wildlife always makes me discover new and interesting facts and places.

Here's a cool one for you.



What used to be mined at this remote National Wildlife Refuge?

Lets see......... I believe it is guano that was mined there, like so many other remote islands that have large bird colonies. The island is Jarvis Island.

Correct my friend!
Guano was mined heavily in the 1800's for fertilizer.
You're up.

N 14 33' 31.62 W 90 44' 01.66


This location was once the capital of Central America but with in a couple of hundred years the capital was moved to what is now Guatemala City. What was the reason for moving the whole city?

Today it is one of the main tourist attraction of the region, with many historical churches, public and private buidings. It has a great market with many of the local people sell their products.

Shortly after the Spanish conquest of Guatemala, the first capital was on a site part-way up this mountain. It was destroyed by a flood and mudslide when an earthquake let loose the water from the crater, and the capital of Guatemala was moved down the valley to the current Antigua. The original site is a village now known as "Ciudad Vieja", ("The Old City").
