    I thought it might be fun to do a Guess the spot thread but instead of posting photos, you post a screen shot from a map. Terrain View, Satellite View or Topo View. Feel free to blur/erase any names if they give too much info.

    The BCP maps page is great at getting topo layers, sat and terrain. Check it out here: http://backcountrypost.com/map/

    I'll kick it off with this one. Name the prominent feature, not just the river.

    The Cheese and Raisin Hills! (not really sure, but I saw it on a map sometime and thought it would be a cool guess)

    Gah, beat me to it! Pretty easily recognizable after you've stared at it in Google Earth dozens of times and then actually going there. :)
