@Katiana

That is just a pure guess on my part, my cousin used to play for the denver broncos, and the pics he sent me of the rocky mountains reminded of those pics you posted. Ones with the mountains at least.

Actually the first three pics in number 12 look like the appalachian mountains

I don't think there are any black bear in Colorado. I was going to say Alaska until I saw you said "continental" US. The other two mountain pictures could be Colorado, but probably aren't since I'd guess they were taken on the same trip. Wyoming?

None are in Alaska. Which other two could be in Colorado? They're over a wide area, but most one trip.

Colorado has black bears, I guess not in the area where you live.

bears/BearSMART Durango: Durango, CO

he black bear population in Colorado is estimated at around 12,000 animals.

but most of them are brown-colored but they're technically black bears. Maybe that's what you meant.

The thing with the horns (I don't know what it is) and the thing with the tail, some sort of rodent, it looks like.

Yes, Colorado has black bears. And a couple of those photos look like Wyoming (Tetons) which is a wonderful place DESPITE cheney living there part time. And nei, always appreciate your photos, especially when used to disarm trolls.

Don't trust anyone over 30.

Upstate NY is rather divided between anti- and pro-fracking. A good way to determine where the Ithaca "metro" ends is where the lawn signs switch from anti- to pro- fracking.

The animal with horns is a mountain goat. The rodent is a marmot, which found thoughout mountains in western North America. There are mountain goats in Colorado, but only because humans introduced them; their native range is further north.

As to the photos… for post #12:

1) As to weetah said, it's in Appalachia. Sorta. It's along the Deerfield River 9 miles west of Charlemont, MA. Physically Appalachia, but people tend not to refer to the Appalachians in NY State (especially eastern NY) and New England as Appalachia.

2) But #2 and #3 aren't in Appalachia. Or anywhere in the eastern US. #2 is along the Scott River in far Northern California, not that far from the Oregon Border*. It's rather wet for California but by the end of summer it'll get a semi-arid appearance.

*for western state sizes, not so much in the northeast, where it's common to live close to a state border.

3) Southen Oregon on the western slopes of the Cascades. Umpaqua River

4) Hoh Rainforest, Olympic National Park, WA.

Last two, especially #4, have the typical PNW moss. #2 has too many conifers for the east coast and the non-conifers don't look eastern.

5) Olympic Mountains, maybe 20 miles south of Sequim. Near Mt. Baldy

6) Hurricane Ridge, Olympic Mountains (in the park)

7) Mt. Slesse, North Cascades, 15 southeast of Chilliwack, BC

8) North Cascades, Manning Provincial Park. The mountain is in the US

9) North Cascades west of Stehkin, WA

10 & 11) North Cascades near Marblemount, WA

Next 3:

1) Chilliwack Lake, BC in the North Cascades by the international border. Noisy motorboat

2) Mattole Road near Ferndale, CA (not too far from the coast — far Northern CA) Don't think unfenced cattle is done in the Northeast US

3) Somewhere near the coast of northern Oregon

Post #22:

1) British Columbia east of the Cascades

2) North Cascades. Cloud trap!

3 & 4) Western, MA. From Sugarloaf "Mountain". Little town in the last photo is Sunderland, MA.

so yeah, they're almost all Pacific Northwest. Or close to it.
