    I noticed that this map has a ©Sanborn logo at the bottom. I googled the word “Sanborn” to find out it’s a US company that makes detailed maps of major metro areas, mainly us Cities. Here is a list of them at this site. http://www.sanborn.com/products/citysets.htm I bet #98 in in one of these cities?

    I also bet that it is along side a river or vally because of the switch back trails in the NE corner

  3. Good observation on the switch-backs, Aaron. I missed that. It will be interesting to see if your guess on Sanborn bears out.

  4. I should note that while this image is still findable, it is no longer identical to what you see here. But you should be able to identify it.

    Aaron’s reasoning was sound. This high-point overlooks the Kansas River just before it joins the Missouri River.

    The current image has most of the central area as a construction zone, and the building at the bottom right is completely gone!

  6. Good job

    I have a feeling the image now in Google Earth may be older than the one here, but it’s hard to say.

  7. Looks like I should’ve said Kansas City KS/MO. I clicked on just about every ‘layer’ choice to see if I could learn more about this site. It appears that the KS/MO state line runs right down the middle of this image.

    I took a much closer look at the area showing a building in the bottom right of Brad’s image. The current image shows a series of silos that are being demolished, which means Brad’s image is the older one.
