Ron Schott pegged Challenge #2 as Wizard Island, Crater Lake, Oregon. He even got the exact viewpoint it was taken from. He is a Google Earth-fu Master. He’s also brought us up to $20.
This next one is some geology by air. Name the fascinating geologic location framed by the window and the wing, and you’ll be the next to get a $10 donation to the Secular Student Alliance in your honor!
If no one identifies it by 3:30pm Pacific, I’ll start posting hints in the comments. I’m also putting a Schott Rule in effect: other folks will get a chance, but if no one’s identified it by 4, Ron can take the crown once again. Believe me when I say there’s no picture I can post that will stump him for long. That’s true for Earth, and I suspect that if I flew to Mars and posted a photo of some previously-unknown-to-humankind location, he’d have it pinpointed in about 10 seconds. Maybe 20.
For those who wish to donate themselves, the button still works fine:
If I don’t respond or fish a comment out of moderation quickly, forgive me: my internet connection is playing silly buggers off and on today. Your time stamp still counts, so no worries.
