Update (Friday, 7:03 p.m.): The correct answer--with 20 people got--is the Berkeley pit, a contaminated copper mine in Butte, Montana. Tune in Monday for the next Road Trip Picture of the Day challenge.
It's almost the weekend, but before you head off for two (hopefully sunny, warm, and pleasant) days of down time, there's one more chance this week to win a prize in the Road Trip Picture of the Day challenge.
Your task is to identify what this is a picture of, and where it's located. If I didn't already know what it was, I'd think it was a rather difficult one, but I am always surprised by how quickly some folks are able to come up with the right answer.
So if you have that answer, please e-mail it to me (at daniel--dot--terdiman--at--cnet--dot--com, including "Picture of the Day" in the subject line). I'll choose a winner at random from among everyone who sends in both pieces of the correct answer. Please forgive me if you don't hear from me if you're not the winner. I get dozens of responses each day.
One caveat: No individual can win more than two prizes. But at the end of the trip, I'll be drawing a name from among all the daily challenge winners and giving out something a little more substantial to that person.
For now, then, good luck, and stay tuned for the next Picture of the Day challenge on Monday.
On June 24, Geek Gestalt will kick off Road Trip 2010. After driving more than 18,000 miles in the Rocky Mountains, the Pacific Northwest, the Southwest, and the Southeast over the last four years, I'll be looking for the best in technology, science, military, nature, aviation, and more throughout the American northeast. If you have a suggestion for someplace to visit, drop me a line. In the meantime, you can follow my preparations for the project on Twitter @GreeterDan and @RoadTrip.
