    Guess the City #283 (aerial image edition #2)

    This image was taken from a screenshot of a Terraserver-USA aerial image. As in my last one, it may or may not have been rotated, so 'up' may or may not be 'north'.

    Unlike the last one, however, this one is indeed located somewhere within the borders of the USofA.



    Enjoy!

    Jackson isn't like that! There are trees amid the ruins. Actually Jackson, while an odd town (and birthplace of your republican party) is not in terrible shape, its not in great shape, but its not bad. I'd guess New Orleans, but there are no trees there either, nor do I see as much debries as I would expect.

    I think you guys are way off. It is obviously not an eastern city due to the lack of trees. The whole city looks dusty. It has to be somewhere in the southwest or inland CA, OR or WA.

    Nope, nobody's gotten it right yet.

    Keep trying, you'll deduce it.

    The key is the Y junction on the railroad. I haven't been able to find it anywhere, even Elko.

    Off topic: Has anybody seen how wide the streets are in Butte? Every one seems to have angled parking on both sides.

    Nope, still nobody has it.

    BTW, that 'Y' is NOT a railroad, it is city streets and is on a state highway.

    I'll give ya'll a hint, too: It is within a one hour drive of a border crossing.

    This is a hard one. Being close to the border wasn't much of hint for me. I'm guessing that is either a railroad or a canal in the upper left corner.

    I'm guessing somewhere along the Cali/ Mexico border.

    There just aren't too many towns along the AZ/ Mexico border.

    I don't have a specific guess though

    One little hint, that corridor in the upper left corner is a highway bypass that was under construction when the image was flown in 1991.

    Rusted Can, ID?
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

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

    Maybe Carlsbad or Las Cruces NM??? I don't know haven't looked at maps of the towns, but looks similar. A pretty rough aerial. If not I'm guessing a CA town as well, don't know hadn't thought about far west Tejass too?
