That rings a bell. Does this overlap with an earlier puzzle that concerned adventures in NSW?


On the face of it, yes.

In a bit of searching, I looked at over a dozen pages of images -- mostly faces but also my posted picture of Lee Ho Fook's (not sure how that one turned up, although the person's name is mentioned in my post). But I also learned what a gaol is.

Well, there were a few stellar and almost stellar events that weekend, but I wouldn't want to hazard a guess: this doesn't look to me much like Brentwood, Higher Bebington, Sidney, North Carolina or Soweto

I didn't realize that Barack Obama's first birthday party was on August 4 of that year. He was, of course, born in Honolulu, which some Americans, poor geography students that they are, believe to be the capital of Kenya.

But that has nothing to do with this puzzle.

One of the locations listed is the site of an event that occurred on August 5 of that year. The picture is of a nearby place that dominated the main character's future.

Can't identify which site fits that story. One main character had no future, one site had four main characters, one event actually occurred pretty far outside the city named (and its in doubt who the main character of the specific event really was) one main character definitely could not have come into the picture in any city, and one actually happened pretty far from the site mentioned (although is usually associated with it) and then moved nearby the named place later. This last one is the closest, but I can't match the picture to it, except generally in involves tall buildings. This one has me in a half nelson.

It was not in the Southern Hemisphere and, in the end, involved only one main character.

The pictured site is evidently a popular destination for celebrities but the selection criteria are strict.

Got it. Anybody with normal genes could. "Dominated the main character's future" That's good. Some will like it; I think its a misfit in the story. Next time I grab a burger in the nearby hamlet I'll stop by.

If you're wondering, it's not about the horse.

Not sure what event that describes -- seems a bit off track to me.

Oops sorry that should have been "million" not "billion".

How's that>?

Nothing fell down, sorry.

Does anyone recognize anything in the picture besides the horse??? Anyone! Seems like somebody can figure those out, which would likely provide fodder for others....

All man made objects in the picture are fully operational. Well, the horse is too, I suppose, but not man made.

Ok, here's another image of what you see in the first picture. I found this one on a YouTube video. Hope it gets you back on track.
                             

The first picture was zoomed way in, so the objects appear closer to the horse than they are.

That's what they are. But the ones in the puzzle are in a noteworthy place. Adding more, so this puzzle doesn't spiral out of control again, the area should be more noteworthy tomorrow.

According to Google Maps, the horse is approximately 96.38 miles from the Whitney summit hut. :grin:

After the summer break, it's good to see a keene interest in WITWHH. And the horse's name is not "Chicken Little".
