Yeah, but it was an indirect to a marriage to a Fresno High dropout. You reminded us of the great Duane Allman and Dickey Betts. Thank you!

Waterfalls are mostly, but not always where you expect to find them.

I think you have the state, you need to go back about 30 years.

I know, but I did not realize this was a clue, too.

Way to go, Harvey.

November 20, 1980

Does this mean that we've got to go back to the... diamond crystal?

We have a winner!



Who would believe a 150' waterfall in Lousiana?

And here is the wiki.

The question to the Jeopardy answer is "How do you drain a freshwater lake like a bath tub and turn it into a salt water lake?"
That was fascinating. Thanks wagga.

IMHO, that was the best "what in the world happened here?" yet.

Lake Peigneur sinkhole disaster: Incredible!

Watched the full 10-minute video, awe struck. And then at 7:35 into the video, there is that clip from Kelvin K Wu, obviously an Asian fellow, but with a completely southern drawl. Never heard that before, either!

I agree with Alan, best puzzle yet.

at first I wasted time on the negligee clue. the eventual name of Lake Peigneur was forgotten by me and I do not know French, and especially the very obscure french word
pei·gnoir
: a woman's loose negligee or dressing gown

Most important was Wagga's clue that the lake was no longer a fresh water lake. I first imagined the lake was meriometic. Nope.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meromictic_lake
Then I considered maybe it was a polder.. Nope.

What's left - it went dry? How could a lake drain, and have anything to do with an unusually-located "waterfall"? Could it drain straight down? But it did not look like a lake sitting in a crater. What's left? This led me back to how does a lake drain weirdly in France, French colony... no. How about a state? Ta-da, must be Na'leans. The overlooked salt mine clue resurrected itself at this point.

The clues in the pictures are all there. The Wagga tips are all there (I grudgingly acknowledge!) Just have to recognize them. Thanks

I got distracted early on by Lake Neglige, MN. No salt, though. Among other deficiencies.
