    Guess the City 187

    Guess the City!
    Maybe not as interesting as JNL's trip pictures, but hey, give it a try.

    SOME say the world will end in fire, Some say in ice.
    From what I’ve tasted of desire
    I hold with those who favor fire.
    But if it had to perish twice, I think I know enough of hate
    To know that for destruction ice
    Is also great
    And would suffice.

    Robert Frost (1874–1963) (From Harper’s Magazine, December 1920.)

    yep, Fairbanks (check the grassy riverbank in the bottom right hand corner of pic)

    Unless you're being sneaky, DH.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Six seasons and a movie!

    Dang! If there were ever a time to be sneaky, this would be it. But alas, no. It is indeed Fairbanks. And no, in the original compressed photo that I downloaded I didn't see the sign on the ground. D'oh!

    Congrats valhallan and mendelman!

    I have a bunch of cityscapes that I will have to wipe off this computer that I was saving for future GTC's. Guess I'll have to start up a new collection.
