Google Maps - Inaugural (Been-there) Edition

| | Comments (5)

Because Kevin asked me to. Actually, because I'd been meaning to do it anyway for a while cause this is just sooo much fun :)

Here's a bunch of locations from around the world (but in reality only places I've been to for this version), have a guess at where they are.











Answers next week!

Well, I'll give it a shot, but my tired brain is only partially alert.

#2: *Ayers Rock
#6: Golden Gate Bridge
#8: The White House
#7: *Empire State Building

I think:
#1: *Sydney Harbor?
#9: *Mesa Desert?

I feel like I should be able to place #4, but I can't.

*I never seen these in person. Wish I could!

#1 - Sydney Harbor Bridge?
#2 - Ayer's Rock (Katie got that one!)
#3 - I fear you might be trying to counter my Apple Campus, so maybe this is Microsoft?
#4 - No flippin' clue
#5 - Mount Rushmore (I GOT ONE!!!!)
#6 - Golden Gate Bridge (Katie again)
#7 - Empire State Building (Katie)
#8 - The White House
#9 - Even less clue than on #4
#10 - Glen Canyon Dam

I would like to point out that Katie spent nearly an hour trying to figure #4 out. She even guessed it this morning, but thought better of her selection because it just didn't feel right. Now we KNOW it's right.

I'm changing my vote on #9. I knew it was were some John Wayne movies were filmed, but I couldn't remember the name. Now I remember, it's Monument Valley. I think there's even a name for this specific part of the Valley, Three something, but I can't remember. Really, really would love to go there someday!!!

Thanks for sharing this...very fun.
