    We've played this on my 4x4 forum, thought it would be fun here too. Here's how the game works...post a photo from somewhere in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming or Montana and the other Rockies inmates guess the location. The person that gets it right gets to post the next photo, and so on. Its a fun way to learn about new places, show off your travels and share your photos. Photos with bikes get extra credit!

    Rules!!

    1- Don't post a photo unless it's your turn! If you guess a location correctly, then you're up.

    2- Feel free to drop hints if needed & try not to make it too obscure. If a photo/location goes for sometime without being revealed after a few hints, please share the location and toss out the next turn to someone else.

    3- If the most recent winner doesn't take his/her turn within 24 hours, the challenge is open to anyone to post their photo.



    I suppose I'll start.... where is this?

    Yes, Moab area... looking for a name of the canyon, valley or near by residence. :evil

    I haven't been down that road, so I'm just taking a wild guess based on the terrain that it is Castle Valley. :dunno

    Nope, not Paradox.

    I'll hold out on a hint for a little more... it should be a well known area/road.

    Yep, top of Onion Creek, between the exit/entrance to Rose Garden Hill and the Hideout Road... right next to Taylor Ranch.

    You're up!

    Heading up to Rose garden, just before the the left turn...Our last try to do the Koko/white rim/koko, nearby a buddy had issues with his rear brake...

    I could not find the latest attempt, with a photo almost exact, but here's the last attempt: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=462990&page=2

    Cool! That had to be exciting going down. I've ridden that on my mountain bike years ago. One of Moab's best!

    Okay, here is the next one:

    Imogene. I've never been there but I think I'm at least close. That looks like a Suzuki gel seat if I'm not mistaken.
