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 (#210) is Bedford, Pennsylvania, USA
Where in the World is Gary? #211
Latitude — 37° 16′ North
Longitude — 107° 52′ West
This place is a famous narrow-gauge railroad embarkation and debarkation point. Gold and silver figured in the past of this place. Later, Uranium mining caused a “boom” in 1948. Bat Masterson, Butch Cassidy, and Louis L’Amour all stayed at the Strater Hotel here.
The Million Dollar Highway begins here.
