Starting tomorrow, we’ll start the second half of the road-trip photo quiz with Mystery Photo Number Eleven. These last 10, I hope, will prove a little more challenging than the first 10.To review: All pictures are places in the American West, and each is a place I have personally visited. Needless to say, each picture was taken by me. (The only exception was Beaverhead Rock in Montana.) They are not posted in any kind of chronological or geographic order. I’m trying to stay well off the interstates, but a few places might be close. The answers to all questions will always be discoverable online, provided you know where to look.
The main question for each photo is worth one point. The followup question or questions will be worth a total of three points. There are 20 photos in all for a total of 80 points, so the first one to amass 41 points wins. Otherwise the person with the most points wins. The prize is a $50 Visa gift card.
You can make as many guesses as you like, but only the first correct one counts. I’ve been stunned to find out that some of the questions may have more than one technically correct answer, so in those cases I’ll award points only for the specific answer I had in mind. You’ll just have to trust me on that. And it’s a good idea to keep track of your own points in case I bungle the count somehow.
One last thing: I may often be without an Internet connection in the coming weeks, so there will be occasional delays in awarding points for guesses. Not to worry. The posts will be more or less regular, because I schedule them in advance. It’s just the replies that might be late.
