mountains – Germany, Thuringia, Inselsberg visible from Bavaria, Coburg?

My husband and me have different opinions about this. But we both are not able to find the reasoning or proofs:

We drove from Bavaria to Thuringia via the highway A73. After passing the town Coburg, I saw a far far distanted mountain from the top of a hill (while driving) and I was sure it was the Inselsberg in Thuringia. But my husband said, this can not be possible because of the mountains around Oberhof, they would be hide the Inselsberg.

I had a look to a map and found some spots on the A73, where it could be possible to spot the Inselsberg beneath the mountains of Oberhof.

Now I search for someone, who knows this highway or the region (or who knows how to use maps better than me) and could answer my question:

Is it possible to spot the Inselberg from a place near Coburg (maybe from the highway)?

Which snowy mountains and lake in California did Chloe Kim drive to?

You can see more of this location at 3:10. My kid’s a big fan of Chloe Kim, Olympic Gold Medalist, not just because she was accepted to Princeton University.

Chloe’s Korean American born and raised in California. I’m guessing this is in California?

norway – Where are this river and bridge separating two towns, surrounded by mountains?

This appears to be the Sykkylven Bridge:

The Sykkylven Bridge (Norwegian: Sykkylvsbrua) is a concrete bridge that crosses the Sykkylvsfjorden in Sykkylven Municipality in Møre og Romsdal county, Norway. It connects the municipal center of Aure with the village of Ikornnes on the other side of the fjord.

Here is a Google Earth view similar to your picture:

Where’s this vine yard, near water and mountains, in Okanagan Valley?

We travelled to Okanagan Valley in 2000, but not sure if this was photographed there.

identify this – What are the mountains visible in these photos?

the first, second and 4th image show a large, unforested area with a distinctly differently colored patch. this appears to match the Manpur region on Nasa satellite maps of Nepal (the yellow area circled below), although it also could match the kathmandu region (yellow dots):

enter image description here

Mount Everest lies in the orange circle. I’ve tried to match that area to the image:

enter image description here

My best guess is that Mount Everest lies in the orange circle. this seems to match the general topography of the Mount Everest area: really high mountains surrounding a valley where the mountains taper off slowly. In addition, on the second image, you can almost see what looks like the Annapurna pass between Nepal and Tibet straight ahead from the Manpur region, the area where the mountains don’t appear to have snow.

This is only a rough estimate, but to the extent of my knowledge of the region, I think it’s the most likely candidate. If the area with the differently colored patch is actually the Kathmandu capital region, the orange dotted mountains are a more likely candidate for Mount Everest. I do not know enough about Nepal to be sure of either claim.

poland – How much have Eastern Bieszczady Mountains changed over the last 30 years?

I used to trek across the Eastern Bieszczady Mountains 30 years ago when visiting Poland. It was awesome.

I am planning to be back (this time with my teen children) and would like to understand how much they changed. I am not talking about nostalgia but rather about the availability of food/housing on the mountains, also on how much the tracks were made easier. Overall I am trying to understand how much change I can expect.

In other words, would the “me from the late ’80s” be surprised if time transported to today, somewhere between Wetlina and Ustrzyki Gorne?

mountains – What does this sign near a waterfall in Switzerland (Saut du Doubs) mean?

Among my friends we had a disagreement/confusion as to what the following sign means:

enter image description here

The sign is located on the top of the waterfall, but an access path to the bottom is nearby.

Our hypotheses:

  1. No fishing due to risk of falling rocks (from the mountain)
  2. Caution when fishing due to risk of falling rocks
  3. Do not throw rocks down because of people fishing on the bottom (risk of injury/death to the fisher)
  4. Do not throw rocks down because of people fishing on the top (risk of disturbing the fish)

I think 3. is the most likely but I would like to find a more official source, or alternatively other similar signs at similar places to clarify the meaning.

Added from a comment:
it is on the top level of the waterfall, but a path to the bottom is nearby.

Where’s this white lookout over mountains with autumn colors in New Hampshire? [closed]

enter image description here

  1. I tumbled this at October in New Hampshire : AutumnPorn. Where is this?

  2. Can I drive to it, step out of car, and enjoy view? Hiking is too dangerous to me.


Beautiful. White mountains? Mt. Washington?

Where’s a road of McMansions in New Zealand that opens up to green flat field and mountains?

When my family and we travelled to New Zealand, we were just driving around on a road in some suburb. We turned on a road of at least 40 town houses or houses packed in close together on postage-stamp-sized lots on a road. But we got surprised because this road ABRUPTLY separated the houses from the wilderness. The other side of road had just green grass flatland for kilometers until mountains. Anyone know where this is?

These pictures don’t show the abruptness, but I can’t find anything relevant.
