Thankyou TARJUNKIE !!

La Puesta del Sol
"Located on Fort McDowell Yavapai Nation Reservation (northeast of Phoenix/Scottsdale), this adobe style fortress is perfect for a western-cookout or a Southwestern evening. There are uninterrupted views of the Four Peaks and Matazal wilderness areas, the Superstition Wilderness area, Fountain Hills and the Continental Mountains. Covered space is available in this remote western setting with spectacular views."

..........and I was in Scottsdale and Sedona in July.  Who'd thunk????  I know it will probably be closer to the end of July until they get to the desert, but to think I was so close!!!   )<

There was a huge wild fire between Scottsdale and Sedona (west of the Fort McDowell area) while I was there.  Not that it matters, just some curious info. 

Great thanx to tarjunkie  =]/ as I spent a bit of time search for Pueblo/Southwestern/Mission style everything....to no avail.

On to the next one..........   *(^

Super Work Tarjunkie.   :t-up:

For those who tried (like me for example).  This link comes up on page one of a Google search of ["adobe style" arizona evening]

I had tried lots of variations.  And I was trying to come up with a word along the lines of 'evening'.  But I never got it.

ETA:
The 'evening' sentiment comes from Puddin's observation of an electrical outlet next to a bush.  I was thinking it was for lighting and the way things looked kind of dolled up for show... It just never jelled for me.  Just not very many words for Google to grab onto at that site.  That was a tough cookie to crack.

Congratulations to TJ, that was some great work. Like others, I was all over AZ but never found it; I never tried "evening" and I'm curious about the exact phrase used. Could this be the flag we saw on the left?

#5 looks like Jackson Hole/Tetons. I'll add a few of my own
 
Actually banzai it was Slowhatch that correctly identified the Tetons first back on page 1  ..

The average is 2 states per episode. We have spoilers for Wyoming, Utah, and Arizona. We're missing 1 state.  *(^

Banzai,  You're missing Montana.  Puddin has posted a few spoilers about Billings.   Here's another one that was posted by a Billings TV station before this seaon's race began.

banzai we discounted the Fort Benton article ,
http://forum.realityfanforum.com/index.php/topic,6511.15.html

but we still have the
BILLINGS ,Montana spoiler which came later but was speculated originally at Blows ..
the blog that I found on-line fits in nicely ...

Amazing Race makes stop in Billings

 
 BILLINGS -- The latest season of one of TV's most popular reality shows begins Tuesday night on KTVQ. And part of this year's "The Amazing Race" will look very familiar to viewers in the Billings area.

Q2 has learned that the contestants and crew of "The Amazing Race: Family Edition" stayed in Billings for several days.

CBS won't say where the production crew spent time, or how far along in the series the Billings stop was.

In the Emmy-winning reality show, teams follow clues and race each other around the world on a limited budget.

For the Family Edition, instead of couples, nine families of four are competing for a $1 million grand prize.

The season premiere of "The Amazing Race: Family Edition" airs every Tuesday at 8:00 p.m. on KTVQ.

The Amazing Race: A Rumor
Now that the Amazing Race has started, the rumor mill is grinding. I heard a rumor a month or so ago that the Amazing Race contestants had been in Montana. And in Billings no less. But today I heard another rumor from a pretty reliable source. Not only were the Amazing Race contestants in Montana but the pit stop for that particular point in the race was a ranch not more than 45 miles from where I live! Whether this is all true or not remains to be seen. But this is the way I heard it. The Race leaves Cody, WY and heads for Fishtail, Montana through Red Lodge. They camp at the ranch for their mandatory rest period and then head off to the airport in Billings. Which means they had to pass by the town I live it! This is all too exciting! This is all speculation, however, but it sure makes the race fun to watch.

Ha!  Chateau, those locations may look close together, but a lot of driving on two lane roads is required.  Plus, you add in all of the summer traffic (RVs, etc.) and one can become a very frustrated driver.

There's also a great change in elevation.  Cody's only at 5000 feet.  Yellowstone's roads are mostly at 7500 to 8500 feet.

If they visit Old Faithful, they'll have to make a loop in Yellowstome to get to Cody.  You have to take a left at the T coming up from the Tetons.

Yellowstone is one of the greatest places I have ever visited but the driving sucked.  Oh, I forgot to add all of the vehicles slowing down and stopping to view the elk, buffalo, moose, and other animals..

I don't expect an auto race in Yellowstone.

I believe I've finally made some progress on the Extra 300l. For a few weeks I had been trying to stuff a square peg in a round hole: I was convinced the plane was in Utah for a Detour (with the balloons). Google wasn't helping, so I finally gave up and tried Webshots. It didn't take long to find this plane, complete with URL. Go to this image search and you'll see a bunch of white Extras (also note the company logo, which I've copied). Fighter Combat International uses the 300s in their fleet (I had trouble loading their pages and had to use the Google cache; if anybody has better luck, please share). Compare: the white top and colored underbelly, the registration markings (N-number), and the logo on the tail and behind the cockpit. The bad news: FCI has locations in both Mesa AZ and Niagara Falls, so I can't get any closer than that.

After a bit of study, maybe I can get a little closer. I still can't load the FCI webpages, but a couple of things stick out: first, the Canadian-registered planes have a different design (see here); and second, the terrain around the Mesa HQ much more closely resembles the vidcap than the Niagara area (Google Earth snapshots below). It's not much to go on, so I'll keep the BBQ crow handy, but for now I'm going to go ahead and call the plane ride for the Arizona episode.

Okay, I think I got it pegged now.  These mountains are known as the Cathedral Group.  They include Grand Teton, Mount Owen, and Teewinot.

This site has a shot from the right direction (Snake River).

Compare:

And the pit stop for this leg of the race will be at The Triangle X Ranch.  (just a guess)
