These are some amazing mountains, some of the most visited in the United States. In some ways, they may look quite normal. But don't doubt how special they are.
Have you been there? If so, you'll surely recognize them. But even if you've never been there, you may still recognize them. Either way, I want to know what mountains you think these are and just as importantly, where this photo was taken from. If you're right, you could win a prize in the CNET Road Trip Picture of the Day challenge.
So if you have those answers, please e-mail them to me no later than 6 p.m. Pacific time Tuesday (at daniel--dot--terdiman--at--cnet--dot--com, including "Picture of the Day" in the subject line). I'll choose a winner at random from among everyone who sends in both pieces of the correct answer. Please forgive me if you don't hear from me if you're not the winner. I get dozens of responses each day.
Also, I've turned off comments because some people have been posting the correct answers there. I hate to shut down discussion, but I want you to figure out the answer on your own.
One caveat: no individual can win more than two prizes. But at the end of the trip, I'll be drawing a name from among all the daily challenge winners and giving out something a little more substantial.
On June 24, Geek Gestalt will kick off Road Trip 2010. After driving more than 18,000 miles in the Rocky Mountains, the Pacific Northwest, the Southwest and the Southeast over the last four years, I'll be looking for the best in technology, science, military, nature, aviation and more throughout the American northeast. If you have a suggestion for someplace to visit, drop me a line. In the meantime, you can follow my preparations for the project on Twitter @GreeterDan and @RoadTrip and find the project on Facebook.
