I think we ought to adopt that as a general rule. So folks, if you're going to post an answer, make sure you have a suitable challenge ready.

All I can tell so far is it's a vista point (with lots of parking) looking out over a rapids or low falls on a river in the Southwestern US. There's a good chance that it's inside a national park. Not many rivers with this much water through areas this arid. Is the river the Colorado?

Is it the American River, where the gold that sparked the 1849 Gold Rush was found?

Yes, indeed. The site is Sutter's Mill, on the South Fork of the American River. John Marshall found gold there in 1848, leading the the 1849 Gold Rush. BTW, it is now a state park. Boy, this is a tough crowd to stump.

Your turn.

I knew it was a state park because of the telltale parking lot and visitor centre layout. but for what I just couldnĀ“t figure. So who won? Martin or Hans?
