Where am I?

Using the following clues (the map above is purely decorative) in combination with Street View, work out my location.

Although Roman, THC’s chief puzzlewright, would be interested to know how long it takes you to solve this solo foxer, he’d rather you didn’t put spoilers or solutions in the comments.

Today you’ll find me in a US town that has a smaller population than Alderney, on a street that shares a name with a piano maker, a mountain range, and a Pacific Northwest gunfight. The nearest state line is far from straight and is roughly 15.5 kilometres NNW of my location. If I crossed it I’d enter a state that has a Republican governor, no text on its flag, and a name that doesn’t end with an ‘a’. The closest state capital to my location has a photo of a corpse container on its Wikipedia page. An hour’s walk from a UNESCO World Heritage site, I’m closer to an aquarium than I am to a police station, and closer to a public toilet than I am to a church.

You are probably in the right place if you can see…

  • A bell
  • A trout
  • A rocking chair
  • A moose
  • A caboose
  • A large white X
  • The flag of Scotland
  • The words ‘FUDGE’, ‘MASSAGE’, and ‘JEWERLY’ (sic)

(Last week I was here)


  1. A trout ahoy! Fixation on the wrong state for me too, and, hopefully not a spoiler, but there’s a road less than 400m away that matches an unlikely number of clues so that wasted more time. Sigh. Great fun, probably close to an hour and a half all told. Thanks Roman.
