    Thanks. Is this supposed to work like the airport and city trivia or will you keep posting one every week?

    I believe Lili is right. It looks like Waimea Canyon on Kauai. Just behind the rainiest spot on earth.

    8MiHi's photo is full of sheep. Not likely Hawaii. I'd say Ireland.

    Maybe, but my guess is New Zealand, possibly a view from a Hobbiton window.

    Lili is right again. It is Matamata, NZ on the Hobbiton set from Lord of the Rings. More recently from the new Hobbit movies. The shot was taken from inside Bag End out towards the Party Tree. The room behind the door was really just a ten foot deep plywood lined cave.

    This was exclusively UsingMiles posting pics for everyone to guess. Every Friday we'll post a pic that's up for guessing and at the end of the day the answer will be revealed.

    lili's point is that this thread duplicates established efforts here. I for one
    will confine my attentions to those others unless they bog down badly.

    The question that pops up here is is the experience enhanced by multiple
    threads ploughing one row? What if lili, violist, SuperScot, and Mapsmith
    were to post hourly, daily, fortnightly, and monthly travel trivia in pictures
    threads.
