Can anyone identify this image?
« on: April 06, 2008, 07:39:49 am »

I was checking out screenshots of people using AWN last night and stumbled acrossed this one.  I'm very intrigued with the wallpaper and would like to have it.  I'd love it if someone has a idea where this place is located? I'd like to learn more about it.  Maybe check it out with Google Earth since I don't have airfare :)
