First one looks like Red Run above Wilderness Loop Road. Possibly Devils Run near Davis

Second looks like the Grover Hole on Dryfork down near Jenningston. Here it is at slightly higher flows during a Swiftwater Operations class.

nice wvrocks, the first is a little crossing on dunkenbarger trail in dsods wilderness area. didnt know the name, but it feeds into red creek.

the second is off gladwin rd above jenningston. (rt72->jenningston rd->gladwin rd) cant really tell in the pic but those are ledges you can climb onto, and dive off of. the hole is pretty deep and clear \:\) Props to fishnski for the hookup on that one!

Yeah its a pretty cool place. Lots of people there in the summer.

Since I got one right I'll take the liberty of adding a couple more.

I was just at both of these places last week.

Its in Yosemite National Park in CA. Its about a 14 mile roundtrip with over 4800 ft of vertical ascent. Its a slog. Luckily we were passing through the area and did it as a side trip so it only added 4 miles to our day.

When you get to the top of the lower summit before the cables
they are very intimidating. They basically look vertical. From the bottom of the cables it looks better but its still very steep and the granite is a bit polished. Honestly after doing it I'm suprized the NPS allows it. Even with the cables its very exposed and crowds make it more dangerous. We talked with some people from Yosemite Search and Rescue and they said basically the NPS still does it because to change it would open them up to lawsuits from past accidents. All that considered, if I ever go back I'd do it again.

No question, it is one of five places, assuming you took the picture: WV: Canaan, Timberline, Snowshoe; MD: Wisp
VT: Killington. These were the areas you said you had skied during my April poll! I would guess either Snowshoe or Killington! Since the buildings and roads in the valley appear mmore extensive than at the bottom of the Shoe, I will have to say, Killington! Too bad the picture did not have more resolution for a better blow-up of the valley area! But it sure does look like the top of Cup at Snowshoe!?

Great guess! It was taken right as you come down from the top of the K1 Gondola....I can't believe you used a previous post against me!!!

My turn! Some little town out in California that I was at earlier this summer, which had this really cool bridge that was a pretty cool to walk across :

Yeah, that one was a 'gimmi' After all, who would not be able to recognize something as distinctive as San Francisco and the Golden Gate Bridge? ;\)

Okay, here is something a bit more difficult (the second picture is a pretty big clue if you are familiar with the area):

Potomac River just above the American Legion bridge?

One of my first thoughts, but the bridges are too narrow and not that close together. When driving across the A-L bridge, you can barely tell you are on a bridge. Of course, I may be totally wrong...

One of the bridges on Corr-H?

That is the Rappahannock River right here in Good ol' Fredericksburg, VA. The bridges is the I-95 bridge that crosses the Rappahannock immediately north of Fredericksburg.
