Re-read the rules (first post). Specifically, under the "further details" section of "Name that state."

I must confess that I didn't read the rules, and I'm not on the list of official participants, so my answer won't result in any credit to me, but I couldn't resist! I lived nearby, and I was at that place and took many a walk there just a few years ago. This is ................. from the vantage point of a Veterans Memorial Monument. It is quite beautiful at night.

As this round winds down...

Is there interest in another game in March? Do you like the picture format? Would you prefer broader/different categories? Like what? Comments, suggestions, anathemas?

I think this was fun, I like the format too. The only thing I would like to maybe see taken into account is to suspend questions on the weekends. The reason being is that as a director I often times find myself out of town and unable to check the site. Just a thought, you know?

By the way, who has gotten this last question correct?? Final standings?
