It's the Tehachapi Loop, on the edge of the Mojave desert - http://en.wikipedia..../Tehachapi_Loop. I've even driven past it one time when I lived in California. I think I would have got it from the first photo, but I haven't been checking Cartotalk enough!

This has been a travel waypoint for over a thousand years, and has been remarkably unchanged for the past 200 years or so.

No it doesn't. It is a pilgrims stop on a way to Santiago de Compostela. The name of the town is Conques.

It is a name of the flow, not the one here you can see but the seventh named should be.

When the sun goes up and snow decay it forms four lakes and between them it is hiding from the day.

Correct! A fascinating and picturesque spot - well worth a visit if you are ever in the lower-middle of France - see more Images in Google. and a Wikipedia article.

As Lui said, it is a major node on the pilgrim route to Santiago de Compostela in Spain (the Way of St James), with a splendid abbey church, and a treasury with the relics of St Foy (St Faith, Santa Fe). These were stolen from another monastery by a monk from Conques who posed as a loyal monk in Agen for nearly a decade in order to get close enough to the relics to steal them!

 

Over to you Lui.

Yes! It is a Ljubljanica river. It goes underground five times and that is why it has seven names and flows via 5 karst polje 4 of them are usually lakes in spring and autumn. This year Planinsko polje (the last one) was under 18m of water for 3 months.

 

Your turn!
