Sadly not I'm afraid...It's not Rock that is slurred but your other word.

The Scots were very strategic where they built them. Aside from the views not a lot of easy approaches there!

Canada. The where is it should be easy, but where am I?

Hi John, according to the online pictures I saw it's either Mt Edith Cavell or the one next to it. Also since sandym hasn't responded since 21/10 according to the game rules it's time to move on.

Is having been out bushwalking an excuse? Seems legit to me. Anyway, no, not right. It is Sir Sandford in the Adamants.

I don't know if all newer players are aware of the game rules so might be worth posting relevant links:

https://bushwalk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=34&t=18951

Anyway, the image has been identified by the owner so anyone can go next.

Well, I've just read the rules - who knew there were rules? - so I guess I will try a question/guess.

Somewhere on the Lewis And Clark trail in Oregon and the Columbia River?
