Where is this?

Where He Stands

No, this isn’t the Eye of Sauron — it’s a geological oddity that’s located in Northern Arizona and recently was featured in Arizona Highways. It was awfully warm when it formed more than half a million years ago, but now it’s a cool place to visit with some friends. Or with a fellowship, even.

Writing on the Wall

If you can read the plaque on this Northern Arizona building, this month’s Where Is This? isn’t going to be much of a challenge. If you don’t have superhuman eyesight, we’ll tell you that the building dates to the 1870s and is named after one of its managers. And it’s part of a complex that owes its existence to the water source located there.
