Contest--guess where this is and win socks and a Jimi wallet

The first person who guesses where I took this picture during one of my bike tours gets a free pair of love2pedal socks (size med/lg) and a Jimi wallet.

I need the country and a general location within the country.

Good luck! Dan

If someone was to show me that picture and tell me it was Loch Ness in Scotland, I'ld believe them. I've never been there but that is how I've always imagined it looks.

Looks like parts of Yellowstone but the lake is wrong. Not eastern Nebraska, I'm pretty sure.

Gosh, it could be anywhere but it does have an Ireland or Scotland appearance to it.

Not Ireland, not Scotland, not UK.

Another hint: That is not a lake you are looking at. It is the remnants of a collapsed volcano.

Sorry, but not Italy.

Another hint.

No cyclist from this country has ever won the Tour de France, but a cyclist from this country was a teammate of Lance Armstrong at one point.

Come off it!!! you would never see that much green stuff with that much water at the same time in Florida.

Unless it is at your local park and paid for out of your tax returns.

We have a winner!!!!

It is the South Island of New Zealand (Banks Peninsula on the way to Akaroa about 30-40 miles from Christchurch)

overthehillmedi, you will get a PM from me requesting your name and address and your love2pedal socks and Jimi wallet will be sent out promptly.

Here are a couple more photos from the South Island of New Zealand

Other than the "Nessie" cracks, it must have been a fabulous and memorable trip.

It was! Rained every day, beautiful scenery, great people. Edinburgh is one of my favorite cities (though my kids accuse me of having lots of favorite cities).

We also had an audience with Scotland's most famous resident...
