It is against the law in the nation of origin to climb this, and there was a 1962 stamp that showed it.

Whew! The stamp did it for me. So, the reference to not being called a camel had to do with the fact that the camel is the ship of the desert? Anyway....

The answer is Shiprock Peak (Tsť Bit'Ai) in the Four-Corners area of New Mexico.

You hurt my brain!

You are correct. Shiprock is a volcanic neck, much like Devil's Tower, in New Mexico. It is sacred to the Navajo, hence it is now illegal to climb it. It is an amazing sight to see.

I love the various landforms throughout the southwest, especially in New Mexico.
Okay, what and where is this?

Is that Wave Rock in Hyden, Australia?

Darn your photographic memory or super-human powers, or whatever it is you possess! Yes, of course you got it right! I think Wave Rock is really pretty. I found a prettier picture but it had writing across it.

Wink

It is a giant golf ball on a fancy tee on the planet Zorg.

Hmmm, this one looks interesting. The thing in the background almost looks like a prison, but I'm probably wrong. Something to do with an airport also comes to mind. Ok, I'm off to happily wrack my brains and tax my computer's poor little brain to death now!

Looks like the Trylon and Perisphere at the 1939-1940 World's Fair in New York.

Taking a thumbnail look; could the large object in the center be a dial of some sort (like a sundial) but may have something to with science and astronomy. There are no parking lots or signs. Could the area behind this be some sort of garden. There is something lifeless about this picture.

Is it the insides of some old instrument or device?
