Where in the World is Gary? #206

This new series is a throwback to the game, “Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?” I will give a brief description of a place, including its latitude and longitude and several “interesting” facts about the location. I will also try to include a picture or two from my visit to the place. You, the reader, can then hazard a guess to answer the question posed in the game.

I will reveal the correct location on the following day. Hopefully, this type of post will encourage interaction and perhaps stimulate comments. Good Luck!

The answer to yesterday’s place (#205) is Theodore Roosevelt National Park, Medora, North Dakota, USA

Latitude — 32° 13′ North

Longitude — 110° 55′ West

This place was part of the Gadsden Purchase (1854). Its desert landscape features the largest variety of cactus in the world (the Giant Saguaro).

Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday were in a famous gunfight here. The “White Dove of the Desert” is a major attraction here; its Baroque interior is interesting considering that it was built in 1700.
