    Pretty easy: Answer the city & country where the [relatively popular] landmark/Unique features is and then post your own [relatively popular] landmark (whether you've been or not).
    (Cheating just makes it less fun: Looking at the image source, or googling the photo)


    I will start with mine
    (They are all from different countries)

    I remember this one from your trip(had to look thru your blog to get the name though)

    Fun game, do we need to answer all of the pictures before we can carry on, or just one?

    Edit: damn you Greg, beat me by one minute.

    OOOH I love this game. I've been teaching my kids about different famous landmarks. We got a magnet set with 40 or so different ones in a cartoonish style. Macchu Picchu, Eiffel Tower, Petronas Towers, Giza Pyramids, Rapa Nui etc. When I get some time, I'll add some stuff in. I don't know yours Ben. I'd hazard a guess of Death Valley or Salton Sea on the bottom one, and somewhere in England/Ireland for the castley looking ones.

    Oooh, ooh.. That's Terry Fox!! I can actually get one! No clue where it is though, I'd guess Ontario somewhere. I wasn't aware he had a memorial, but I'm glad he does. I was gonna ask rainer/shasta/mckinley on the mountains, but those are all just longshot guesses. No idea. Can I post one?

    I'll give it to you, S. Shasta is the Legnum one. Baker is the first one, as see from Vancouver Island on a clear day.
