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 Maze! Chocolate Drops on the left, Pictograph Fork center, Jasper Canyon right.
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. :)

I found it on the map. Only see what the road is called. Poison Springs Wash.
