Went on a site survey; got destroyed by chiggers n ticks more than I ever have on any single hike. Land owners were clear cutters. Awful.

The red was looking great yesterday. Wish I had time to go to Muir today.

Hang Em High Horse Camp, or White Oak Boat in; north a bit from there near Horse Lick Creek is the S-tree primitive camps, it's actually quite nice.
If you want large, then of course you're back to state park and lake campgrounds.

Hey Bazinga, that was a good one! Initially it appeared to be Sky Bridge from the river. That threw me. Then I got to looking at the scale of the trees against the height of the arch... hmm, the arch looks to be less than 10 feet high... aha!

So I'm gonna go ahead and get this thread rolling (I hope!)
Here are 2 pics from the same ridge, on a mid February morning, 2018.
This should be quite easy. Name the ridgetop and the road I'm looking at:

Still sunny:


Out on the end and the clouds move in:

Red River Adventure Campground below, between 715 and the river?  From Tarr Ridge?  Is that a chain ladder attached to the cliff face?

You got it, copper creek!!
I call that west Tarr Ridge, with 77 dividing it from what I call middle Tarr Ridge and then east Tarr Ridge is the high (1280ft) ridge that is blocking the view of Chimney Top and Cloudsplitter. Revenuer Rock is across the Red to it's right, I think.

I'm not seeing a chain ladder anywhere... but then my eyesight isn't what it used to be. :-[

Good eye, those are climbing chains.  Used on sport routes to clean 'get all your gear back' the route when you are done climbing.

Ha! I remember my hiking bud, Steve pointing those out at the time, but I wasn't paying too much attention. Busy checking the scenery and framing the pic.
At my age, I find it hard to multitask.  :P

OK. I'll go ahead and throw out another one if nobody minds... feel free to put up your own if you think I'm out of line.

Anyway... Here goes:


This is a view of the same buttress, the second one on the left, 180 from the first perspective ( Note the trees along the ridgetop).


***The winner gets:  ???   

HINT:
This is in a very popular, heavily visited section of the Gorge.
