Feckless Friday: Aerial Reconnaissance Challenge

Feckless FridayFeckless Friday is here! Feckless as in fun, frivilous, irresponsible, AKA something that is just not productive. Just what I need to finish the week!

This is a new thing I’m going to try on the blog, at least for a while. On Friday’s we’ll have a feckless challenge of sorts. I’ll find and post an aerial photo of some sort of famous location on planet Earth. The challenge will be to see if anyone can identify the location. This is not so much of a puzzle, I’m afraid. It’s either something you’ll know or you won’t. Not much strategy in that.

And no Google Maps were used during the creation of this post.

Can you identify the location shown in this aerial image?

The answer along with another image will be shown after the jump.

Answer: Mount Rushmore. (Click image to enlarge.)

Mount RushmoreI’ve never actually been there, so the aerial photo was of absolutely no use to me. Some clever people, though, I’m sure will look at the photo and be able to guess, especially if they’ve ever been there.

Some Mount Rushmore trivia:

  • The project started in 1927 and was finished in 1941.
  • The site receives approx. 2 million visitors per year.
  • The elevation of the site is 5,725 feet above sea level.
  • At the time of his presidential inauguration, George Washington had only one tooth.
  • Abraham Lincoln had a cat named Bob, a turkey named Jack and a dog named Gib.
  • Thomas Jefferson played the violin.
  • Theodore Roosevelt was the first president to fly in an airplane, ride in a car, and travel in a submarine.

I hope you enjoyed this bit of fecklessness.
