A tangent.... This is one of my pet peeves... There are movies which take place in Appalachia, but really obviously weren't filmed there. Huge giveaways are giant coniferous forests or mountains which reach above the tree line. Living in Appalachia most of my life, this really bothers me and I don't know why.Although those mountains aren't very West Virginia-like
Welcome to Hollywood depictions of Europe...A tangent.... This is one of my pet peeves... There are movies which take place in Appalachia, but really obviously weren't filmed there. Huge giveaways are giant coniferous forests or mountains which reach above the tree line. Living in Appalachia most of my life, this really bothers me and I don't know why.
Indeed not! And I think I can spot some ski pistes on those slopes.Although those mountains aren't very West Virginia-like
I didn’t know the actual name of the building so I did a google image search with terms not altogether unlike those. It helped that I knew the name of the town, thoughWell, it looks picturesque enough that I feel like I should get a hit on Google image search with the right search terms. I'm having no luck with "Colorado," "church," "tower," and "bridge" (or any combination of those).
Wild guess: are we near Estes Park?
Wait, what do you mean “google the image?” Is this even legal in this game? #rule4Two things:
1. John Denver didn't just sing about a Rocky Mountain high and wanting to be in Colorado; he sang about an specific place/city.
2. Focus on the church (or a kind of a church) part of the picture to google the image.
Yes, I meant that if you want to verify the place you assume from #1, attending to #2 will do it. It's the only reason I know the name of the building. My hint is really about John Denver songs. Like me, he was born in 1943.I think that means don’t reverse search the image. I usually verify educated guesses or fading memories with google but wouldn’t search from scratch.
I had guessed Aspen so I googled Aspen church and got an image on Aspen Chapel. I thought John Denver was a giveaway too.I thought John Denver was an easy giveaway. Since I didn’t know the name of the church and “Aspen Church” gave the wrong building,
You got it! I stayed with the John Denver theme. Morgantown is home to the University of West Virginia, where they sing "Take Me Home Country Roads" after every football win.Morgantown, WV.
Funny... I thought it looked like WV or OH. I've been to Morgantown quite a few times, but only in this specific area at night and I just didn't recognize it. A friend of mine once lived very close to where this photo was taken.
A subtle difference, but Morgantown is the home of West Virginia University.
Someone mentioned Devil Dogs in another thread. Got my mind running through hazy images of my childhood.That's the Jones Beach watertower, Long Island, New York.
(If you google "traffic circle in ocean" you get a picture of the circle bridge I posted at #11036 and this one in the first few images, so I saw it just a couple of weeks ago. )
