    Another wrong answer. It really does look like this, but the water is rarely that smooth.

    I'm guessing New York State. Somewhere in the Adirondacks? -- Bob

    Not New York, and it isn't Hawaii or Alaska either.

    No one got it right. That is Oklahoma! The shot is a little north of Lawton. I flew NNE out of KFSI. The shot is looking across lake Ellsworth, into the granite peaks of the Wichita Mountains. The peak on the left with the road winding up to the top, is Mt. Scott, at 2464 feet. The lake is about 1200 feet. There are several other peaks that get very close to 2500 feet. The mountains are home to a wildlife refuge containing abundant bison. I have tent camped there many times, with bison grazing just inches from the tent at night.

    Oklahoma has mountains? Who knew?

    If they're not more than 2,500' I doubt many would consider them mountains. Having been born and raised on the side of a knob, I'd call them knobs.

    Interesting shot. And it does sound like a great place to camp.

    It is relative relief. You have about 1300 feet of relief. That is not a lot different than mountains out in Montana where the plain is 4500 and the mountain is 5800. When you are there, they definitely feel like mountains, and they are steeper than the knobs of Kentucky.

    Thanks for the shot! I just "flew" there as well. Very very scenic! And yes I can understand how it would be a wonderful place to camp! I've traversed through on I40 several times. But have never been in that section that I can recall.

    Black Mountain on the Eastern Kentucky border is pretty steep as well. I'm from closer to Cumberland Lake, that's where the Ky. knobs I know best are.
