Kudos to all the diligent folks who took the time to look up the locations of the images in our Name These SoCo Landmarks from Above post last Tuesday. If you didn’t see the post and want to test your knowledge before you see the answers, click HERE before going through the slide show above, which contains the answers to our 36-point Google Maps geography quiz.

Congratulations to Big Something subscriber John Bender who identified every single location by at least one of its facets. He wins a pair of tickets to see Laura Veirs this coming Saturday at Venue 515.

    I love aerial photo art Noel, thanks. And Marina, I believe there are many lakes throughout our area and more than you might think throughout the eastern plains ofColorado – a great majority of them are reservoirs, however.
