    This photo was hanging in my grandparents house since before I was born. I've got it in an out of the way place now. Once every ten years or so I look at it and wonder where the heck it might be. Looked at it again today. Probably in The Rockies. The area is probably more built up now.

    I realize that this is a totally useless piece of information and I don't know why it's bothering me. Thanks for any help.

    Do you know any history on who painted it? Or when? Or where your gp's got it from? That might help narrow it down.

    I can tell you it's absolutely not Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska or Florida. HH

    It's a photograph. It's got that Technicolor look to it, most likely from the fifties. My grandmother said once that she got it cheap, from a "dime store".

    One thing that stands out to me is ...that peak in the background of your photo looks like Long's Peak. Could be another lake in the same region. Bear Lake was the one I recalled best.

    Looks mighty similar to Rising Wolf Mountain you see behind Two Medicine lake in Glacier National Park.

    I am pretty sure that Skorper and Ray9898 are the same person and he is just trying to impress us.
