Guess Where? Canyon Road

201103-b-guesswhere-78jpg

This is a great area for camping, hiking, and winter activities once all this luscious greenery fades away. Can you guess where it is?

Log in and leave your guesses below. Check back on Monday for the answer.

UPDATE 11/07/11: We stumped you! Maybe this was too hard because of its remote location, but this photo was snapped driving through south from Hansen, Idaho through Rock Creek Canyon into the South Hills. Beautiful, isn't it?

OKA! Opens: New Film Highlights Rarely Heard Music From Africa

In theaters today, OKA! is an adaptation of the memoir of an ethnomusicologist from New Jersey, Louis Sarno, who moved to the remote forests of the Central African Republic to record the music of the Bayaka Pygmies over 20 years ago, fell in love and stayed.

Kris Marshall (Love Actually) gives a fine performance as the ethnomusicologist, but it’s the local Bayaka ensemble cast and the lush African rainforest that are worth your attention here. The plot is familiar—a capitalistic politician wants to destroy the Bayaka’s forest home to make way for a logging company’s expansion—but don’t be quick to dismiss this as another Fern Gully rip-off. The beauty of this film is in the moments that aren’t trying to move the plot along—children singing in perfect syncopated rhythm together, a group of women making music in a river using the water as their only instrument, and the documentary-worthy wildlife shots.

If you're in New York you can catch it at the Angelika Film Center, and soon in other theaters nationwide.

UPDATE 10/18/11: Wow, this one was way to easy. All three guesses were correct. This whale can be found in Catoosa, OK right off of Route 66.

Guess Where? Ruins

201103-b-guess-61jpg

Last week's Guess Where was a little too easy, so I'm hoping this one is a stumper. Can you guess which ruins these are? Hint: There's a city in America with the same name.

Log in and leave your guesses below. Check back on Monday for the answer.

UPDATE 10/03/11: Nobody got it this time, but this was a hard one. These are the ruins in Memphis, Egypt.

Four Seasons LA Debuts iPads in All Guestrooms

201109-b-fourseasons-lajpgDo you have iPad envy? Book your next trip at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills and you can pretend like you own one during your stay. Each of its 285 rooms and suites will be stocked with iPad2s for guests to use throughout their stay starting October 3.

Each iPad comes with an innovative program called ICE (Interactive Customer Experience™) from Intelity that will make you feel like you're staying at the Jetson's. How does it work? Instead of picking up the phone to order room service, just press a few buttons and food arrives at your door. You can also make restaurant reservations, request valet parking, airport transportation, spa treatments, and housekeeping. So far, the Four Seasons LA is only hotel on the West Coast and the first Four Seasons property to offer this cool and convenient amenity.

UPDATE 9/27/11: Looks like we confused a few people! This isn't the view from the Empire State Building. It's the view from the Top of the Rock looking north over New York's Central Park.
