Road Trip Pic of the Day, 6/9: What is this?
If you can identify this natural wonder, you could win a prize in the CNET Road Trip Picture of the Day challenge.
Update (Wednesday, 7:39 p.m.): The correct answer--which 29 people got--is Spider Rock, in Arizona's Canyon de Chelly. Thanks to all who played, and please come back tomorrow.
If you've ever done any road-tripping around the United States, then you no doubt have an appreciation for just how beautiful some of our natural wonders are. And if you've got a keen eye, you could win a prize, too.
I'll be leaving for my CNET Road Trip 2010 in a couple of weeks, and visiting some of the most interesting destinations on the east coast in order to produce a series of feature stories and photo galleries on them. But rather than wait until the trip begins, I'm reaching back into the four previous years of the project and pulling out old favorites from the Picture of the Day challenge.
I'm trying something new today. As always, I'm looking for the correct answer to what the above picture is of, and where it's located. But this time, instead of giving the prize to the first person to send in the correct response, I'll pick someone at random at the end of the day from among everyone who was right, and that person will win the prize. So, you don't have to be quickest on the draw. You just have to be accurate.
If you think you know what's in the picture, e-mail me (at daniel--dot--terdiman--at--cnet--dot--com using the phrase "Picture of the Day" in the subject line) with the correct identification of what is in this picture, and where it's located, and you could be the winner.
One caveat: No individual can win more than two prizes. 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 to that person.
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.
