Autumn Skyline Drive: Travel Photo Contest Friday 30

Update: The winner is…No One. I really hate it when this happens, but know you get introduced to a new beautiful spot in the world. This photo was taken on the Skyline Drive (the blue ridge parkway) just outside Luray, Virginia. Thanks again to Chip for his challenging but beautiful picture.

Update: The winner is Michael…who guessed Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia . Runner up mention Jade who guessed Salt Flats in Bolivia, but the local language wins each time Thanks again to Lindsay and her humor and tequila filled travel blog.  Here is what makes this salt so special to Lindsay: “It has a few names, and it’s location is not directly in a city, but in the middle of Salar de Uyuni, in the Daniel Campos Province, Potosí Department, Bolivia.
