Saturday fun activity: Where IS this?


     Okay, these challenges are far too easy. Time to pull out something that strikes me as just a little tougher, maybe stump you guys for an hour, for a change. So I airbrushed out the dead giveaway in this photo, and while I left in one tiny hint, to me this isn't one that should be solved in a minute.
     Of course I could be wrong about that; I invariably am.
     So where is this large rambling white wooden structure? My hunch is that the reader who guesses it won't have actually been there—off the beaten trail, to say the least.  But someone might be able to figure it out. 
      The winner will receive ... not a poster, that's getting old. How about this lovely and inspirational desk flag? I used the line to title my fourth book, and bought dozens of the little flags, thinking they'd be a good promotion giveaway for the book. They weren't, the book sank like a stone, which I suppose is apt. Anyway, the winner takes one away, which will only leave me with 10 or 2o. Place you guesses below. Good luck, have fun.

    1. Me too. I want one! The book was terrific as well. Got me started on father & son books -- there are a bunch of excellent ones around, Don't Give Up the Ship among the best in my opinion.

    2. I've got the hero of that book downstairs, in town for Kent's graduation. He's telling my brother-in-law the route of his first trip on the Empire State, even as I type this.

  7. I'm in awe at the people who get these things - I can count on my hands the number I recognize per year even after the answer.

  8. I was worried that my "guess" would have been technically wrong because I thought I remembered it being decommissioned sometime back in the 90's. I'm glad I was wrong.
    It really wasn't much of a guess, having spent much of my early adult life on the South East side. That is where my kids and their cousins would sleep on hot an sticky summer nights. I wouldn't chance it now....
