Where in the World is Gary? #214

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 (#213) is Death Valley National Park, California, USA

This place was featured prominently in a “UFO” movie. A volcanic monolith rises abruptly 1267 feet above the surrounding, flat landscape.

Native Americans have an elaborate legend to explain the striations of this imposing landmark; the legend involves the heavenly “seven sisters.”



This place was America’s first national monument.
