That was almost too easy. Is that why no one else got it? :)

Give me a couple of hours.

Gee, my first win ever in this game. Thanks!

Okay, here's your next one:



I would have liked to use one of my own pictures, but no one would ever figure out where they were -- the locations aren't spectacular enough. Needless to say, I haven't been to this place, but I'd like to someday.

Yeah, okay, after I posted it, I realized it was probably too easy. The caption on the web page where I found it says "The Gonergrat rack railway station at the base of the Matterhorn."

I guess it goes to Angela, since she posted first.

D*mn. I just remembered what I wanted to post a picture of if I ever got the chance. Well, maybe next time.

I have it on good authority that Angela has deferred to Carlos since He posted the right name of the railway station and He mentioned the mountains name too.

I'll give you two until I get to work tomorrow to decide for yourselves who's going next.

(Imagine that said in the manner of a parent saying "Don't make me stop this car!")

If neither wants It, I'll take it, as I have something that should do.

Ok, ok... It seems I'm going for the Trifecta this evening. I will take this win, if Carlos insists. I also won the Mystery Kitchen Tool contest this evening and I think my entry in the Caption Contest is at least a reasonably strong one. Perhaps I will be a three place winner this evening and then you will all have to work to beat my record! (Did I mention that I have a bit of a competitive streak?)

Landscape photo to follow shortly. Let me get my Kitchen Tool photographed and posted first.

A picture of yours truly and Ol' Pookers in a helicopter in 2002.



And this is what we were flying over. Identify, please.
