Yes, Maryland definitely has mountains! Is it Sugarloaf? Or Catoctin?
Sugarloaf is visible on the horizon, but I'm looking for the name of the mountain where the photo was taken. Catoctin is very close.

I'm thinking Cunningham Falls State Park, but I don't remember an actual mountain. Is that it?

Ok, with a little help from google maps, I see Bob's Hill, and the photos I found match. But I don't remember something called Bob's Hill, even though we were in that area plenty of times. (My parents used to live north of Thurmont between Taneytown and Emmitsburg.) Wish I had gone up there - it looks great!

You are correct! Yeah, Bob's Hill doesn't get much attention around here, but I think it has better views than any of the overlooks in Catoctin.

@Janice, you're up!

And yes, Bob's Hill is in Cunningham Falls State Park. (Sorry, I didn't see this until now.)

That's gotta be the Cumberland plateau of eastern Tennessee. My first guess would be somewhere in Savage Gulf. But I suppose I need to be more specific, since that is a somewhat large area. (And if it's not Savage Gulf, then I have about 3 other next guesses lined up.)

I think it's considered Cumberland Plateau (perhaps near the edge?), but it's not Tennessee. Try going north a bit...

Change "New" to a different 3-letter word with "e" in the middle and move it to a different state in that area!
Haha Red River Gorge. Someone else should take it though because my time spent in any recognizable eastern backcountry has not really been documented with photos.

I was thinking RRG, but your hint made me think further south. I mentioned higher up in this thread that I am terrible at these contests, so where in the gorge is this view? :)

In this photo, the fog is rising above Chimney Top Creek. We camped near Hanson's Point and had great views! If I got the geography wrong in my hint, I'm sorry for confusing you!
