Good guess...but notice that the only trees are near the water, if this were in NW Washington it would be full of trees.

As for your picture I am going to say somewhere in NC, PA, VA, or WV?

Yes, that is exactly where I took it from!

It is easy for anybody familiar with the area...but I've shown it to some people who would not believe that there was anywhere in the state of Washington that looked like that!

Hints for my picture

1. It was the site of the most recently publicized Black Bear "attack" in the US - someone was in the parking lot when a bear jumped up and looked in their car.

2. The site is owned by a private college that was burned to the ground in the 1850s for having Black & White & male and female students in nonsegregated classes. It reopened during the Reconstruction Period

Tennessee River Valley? For the record, I have no clue what I'm talking about on this one.

The answer to mine was Berea College's Indian Fort Mountain in Kentucky - I actually hiked there yesterday
