Where is this...

I was sitting, enjoying my lunch and noticed something in the woods...actually the woods had been cleared out!
I sit here quite often and never saw the item where the woods used to be...
A new thread idea came to mind...this area is right along a heavily used bike path...maybe someone has seen or will see this in the past or the future...
I guess people can ask questions about the item or area, or whatever it is to use the context clues to figure it out...




Hmmm...there’s even a trash can...

Great idea! I'll shoot first. While I haven't been there, I'll guess from a 30,000 foot view that it's off a bike path on Cape Cod.

Edit: Acrltually I don’t have a clue but I found a list of places in the US in alphabetical order and figured I just work my way through it.

Could it be where you buried Jimmie Hoffa? Looks like a remote place.

I kinda pictured people posting pics of well visited places...that someone else might recognize...you know, “Hey I recognize that place!”...people who ride on Cape Cod will readily recognize this area...right off the bike path...in Chatham...Thanks for playing...

Correct.

Another one for you. The same day I took a short detour off my route to view this notable filming location. Certain scenes were not filmed in the house.

It’s in Layton, PA. Short side trip off the GAP. Yes. A friend told me this evening that it sold. Several years ago it was on the market and took years to sell. The biggest drawback is that it abuts a busy rail line.

No one will get this, even with a hint. A very famous actor whose character froze to death in a blockbuster film floated down those falls in a 2015 film.

Leonardo DiCaprio in the Revnant so Kootenai Falls near Libby, MT? The year 2015 and a movie with falls were enough.

But how did you know which falls? Did you look it up?

BTW...It’s a really cool place to visit. Further downstream you can view the gorge and even cross it if you have the nerve.

That's the abandoned section of highway in Pennsylvania with the tunnels... I can't tell you what town it is near however but it a well-known "urban exploration" site.

Weren't there some issues with the tunnels that prompted the new highway which bypassed them?

I am going to have to dig deeper. Ray's Hill Tunnel, a few miles east of Breezewood, PA. Used in the film "The Road."

There was leakage in at least one of the two tunnels that were eventually abandoned, but the real issue were the bottlenecks. Turnpike traffic far exceeded predictions. The highway was two lanes in each direction until you got to the tunnels. That caused delays during heavy usage.

Notice that the surface in the photo looks new for something that was abandoned in the 60s. That's because a section was repaved not all that long ago so it could be used to train, among other people, snow plow operators.

Three for Thursday. One might be easy, and there is a clue embedded in one of the photos, but they are all in different locations. BTW...All of my picks were taken during bike rides, in case you were wondering.

I always got that abandoned highway confused with the town of Centralia PA, which was abandoned due to smoldering fires in the coal mine beneath it. Are they close by each other? Probably not, I suppose, Pennsylvania is a pretty big state!

They are not near each other. The Turnpike section is in the SW. Former Centralia is way east and somewhat north. I rode through what was Centralia back in 2014 during a tour from Youngstown, OH, to Philly. Sadly, "Graffiti Highway" was covered over with dirt last year. That was the short stretch of highway that was bypassed due to roadway damaged caused by the fire. It was still walkable and rideable on a bike. Like the abandoned Turnpike section, the road surface was covered with graffiti. Some of it was pretty funny. Some obscene. I forgot that I have photos of it at home. Should have used those for this game.

Here is a great piece about it:

The End of Centralia's Abandoned, Colorful, Anarchic 'Graffiti Highway' - Atlas Obscura

You can see the abandoned stretch here, just to the NW of the current PA 61 alignment:

The newer part of this home is gone! This part has all of the aspects of these old homes...narrow, steeeep stairs, small rooms, low ceilings, etc. I do pest control...I do all of the stairs in these old homes and all of my homes, two steps at a time...on my bicycles, I don’t get tired...l go faster!
Anyhow, not the biggest home lifted this year...
