Incognito Contest May-June 2009

I am standing on an absolutely pristine beach with soft, pure white sand and turquoise water so clear that I can see every detail at the bottom of the sea. The clarity makes this island as well as the 700 other islands that comprise this country a prime spot for diving, swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, and yachting. This district sits on 360 islands and cays – with the two main ones linked by a small bridge and most of the outer islands and cays uninhabited. All together the archipelago consists of over 2,000 islands and cays and has almost perfect weather year round, even during most of its notoriously destructive hurricane season.

Incognito Contest March-April 2009

I am standing in the midst of a vast national park surrounded by wildlife and open terrain. Commanding the attention of anyone within miles, this colossal mass erupts from the surrounding foothills. 56 million years of crystallization led to the evolution of the majestic snow-capped mountain before me. Withstanding extremely harsh weather, the mountain endures high winds, frequent snowfall, and temperatures as low as -75 degrees Fahrenheit with wind chills of -118 degrees Fahrenheit.

I am standing in the middle of a desert barren of plant life except for a solitary mesquite tree. This 400-year-old tree flourishes despite the lack of a water source, and the mystery behind its survival draws thousands of visitors each year.   From afar the tree is merely a small speck of green amidst miles of sand, and could easily be mistaken for a mirage.

Incognito Contest Nov-Dec 2008

I am standing at the southwestern tip of a country located on an archipelago in the Pacific Ocean. I am in the city that lies perilously close to this monstrous volcano, which showers the local inhabitants with a light ash almost every afternoon.

I am standing in the European countryside, surrounded by lush orchards, the smell of citrus blossoms, rolling green hills…and about 20 acres of concrete. This arrangement of massive cement structures around me is actually a memorial, built in the late 20th century after a devastating earthquake rocked this region in the 1960s, reducing the town that once stood here to rubble. These huge cement bases are laid out to form a footprint of the original town, and travelers who come to awe at this huge outdoor sculpture can walk the labyrinth, remembering the victims and listening to the silence of a ghost town.

Incognito Contest July-August 2008

I am touring one of the most striking geological phenomena in the southwest of a large, powerful country.  As we approach from the highway the typical high desert terrain of the nearby area gives way to bright brick-red cliffs and peaks.  This unique geography was created over millions of years by the awesome power of both water and earthquakes.  The thrust fault (fracture in the earth's crust) created enough force to drive one crustal plate over the top of another. This results in the oldest rocks on the bottom of the upper plate resting directly above the youngest rocks of the lower plate.

Incognito Contest May-June 2008

I am on a day-hike, considered to be one of the best in its country. It is located in a national park that was established in 1887 as only the fourth worldwide. It was the first park in the world to be created by a gift of land by indigenous people; therefore the mountains have deep spiritual significance symbolizing the spiritual links between its community and its environment. In 1993, it became the first property to be inscribed on the World Heritage List for cultural landscapes.

Incognito Contest March-April 2008

I am standing on one of the largest Caribbean islands off the coast of Miami, known for its laid back lifestyle. The town I am in was ‘discovered’ in the 1970’s, yet it is still considered an up-and-coming popular tourist destination. In the late 1960’s, the only accommodation in this town was one house called Llandtrissant. There was nothing more than a lighthouse to guide ships around the rocky western coast and the population was mostly land crabs.

Incognito Contest Jan-Feb 2008

This building that looks like a small castle is actually a church and a Benedictine monastery from the Middle Ages. Apparently it was well protected, sitting atop a beautiful rock island/peninsula next to the town’s beach and surrounded on three sides by the oceans slapping waves.

Incognito Contest Nov-Dec 2007

This meeting house was built in 1940 to commemorate the centenary signing of a treaty that is the generally considered the founding document of the country it is in. Located in the South Pacific, 85% this island nation’s 4 million residents are of European descent, and 15% are descended from the native tribes.
