Update (Thursday, 1:55 p.m.): The answer is that it is the Meyer-Womble Observatory, on Colorado's Mt. Evans. And the car I'm driving on Road Trip 2009 is the white Audi Q7 TDI clean diesel SUV that is in the lower right hand corner of the picture.
RAWLINS, Wyo.--Over the course of the last four-plus weeks, Road Trip 2009 has taken me to some very high places, and some, well, much lower places.
One of the interesting things about spending a month in Colorado, Utah, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming is that it's all high altitude, at least compared with where I live, at sea level.
Still, this spot was pretty high, as evidenced by the snow in the picture--though I have seen snow in each of the states I've passed through on this trip.
For today's picture of the day challenge, I want you to tell me what this is a picture of. If you're the first person to send me an e-mail (to daniel--dot--terdiman--at--cnet--dot--com) telling me where this is, and which of the cars in the picture is the one I've been road-testing, you'll win a prize.
For the next week, Geek Gestalt will be on Road Trip 2009. After driving more than 12,000 miles in the Pacific Northwest, the Southwest and the Southeast over the last three years, I'll be writing about and photographing the best in technology, science, military, nature, aviation. and more in Wyoming and Colorado. If you have a suggestion for someplace to visit, drop me a line. And in the meantime, join the Road Trip 2009 Facebook page and follow my Twitter feed.
