The predominance of flat sheets of rock and the absence of rounded river-formed rocks suggest something around the moraine bedrock west of the Great Lakes. Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota, maybe even Iowa. I can't get any resolution on tree leaves, so they are no help.

No, none of those states.

Correction: The woman was his great, great grandmother.

A tip here would be "Handy," but it would give the region away.

Sorry! You gave us good hints. I ended up finding this article about it too: http://www.una.edu/unamag/09SummerUNAmagazine.pdf

Ok, you all know what's next...my official disclaimer - I get caught up guessing and searching and forget to prep a challenge in case I'm right. Will one of you take my turn please?

I promise to look through my pictures and find a challenge for another time

Ya done good!

Boy...this is a tough crowd! I really thought I had one there which would run forever!

By the way, the "Handy" tip referred to W. C. Handy, who was born near there.

ps: You don't have to use your own pictures. I don't.

That helmet is pretty distinctive. I believe that's the guard at the Royal Palace in Stockholm.

That's it. The use of female guards there now adds a whole new dimension to the scene in "I Am Curious -- Yellow" in 1968, when they tried to distract the guards from their somber attention with salacious midnight frolics.
