Ah, okay, just needed the wider view to see Studebaker! And it took a little poking around and a mistep to South Bend (home of the old Studebaker Corperation) before finding Bendix Woods County Park in Olive Township, Indiania, home of the Studebaker Woods Sign and the Studebaker test track.

 

Of course the Golden Hawk is a car that was produced by the Studebaker.

Yup, I just posted it on a Lark.   :P

 

The pine trees were planted at Studebaker's test track in 1937.  They were damaged in a 2004 ice storm but can still be read at

This road is famous as is the place it leads to. Guess the destination.

This road ascends what has been called the Dutch mountain.

That's it Hans! Alpe d'Huez will be the finish for Stage 18 of this year's Tour de France and because many of the winners of stages finishing at the top of this steep climb (at least in the early years) were from Holland it became known as the "Dutch Mountain."

 

Your turn.

It's a bit like the place "where the banshees live and they do live well".

Well, I've sat on my hands for a while to see if anyone else wanted to guess! But, it looks like Hans and I are volleying back and forth at the moment.

 

This is the newly excavated neolithic site in Orkney (U.K.) called Ring of Brodgar. Very cool place, I had not heard of it before, glad to travel there virtually.

You've got it Alex. Haven't been to that one myself either (though I've seen a few other stone circles and various similar sites)

Thank goodness Alex got that.  I struggled for days and couldn't find that place and was waiting for another image/hint.

Here's a Guess That Location puzzler for the weekend. This bridge played a role in world history.
