Where in the World is Gary? #362

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 (#361) is the Icefields Parkway, Banff, Canada

Latitude — 41° 18′ North

Misquamicut is a native word here. This place contains the oldest operating carousel in the United States (1867). It is the only place where flying horses take visitors for a ride. Local architecture includes the impressive library and the town hall.



The city’s name contains a direction.
