Where in the World is Gary? #283

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 (#282) is Pasadena, California, USA

Latitude — 48° 41′ North

Longitude — 113° 43′ West

This place has become the poster boy for evidence of global warming. 150 glaciers dotted the landscape here in 1860, while there are only 27 now. Logan Pass marks the highest point of this place.

A beautiful, precipitous, scenic drive and the Continental Divide pass through this pass; the road took 11 years to build.
