365 days of SL, day 200:

As I said yesterday, I've left Route 11 behind for now. And as I also said, despite this being day 200, I've not done anything special: what can you do that's special, anyway?

kyroraz suggested an interesting place to visit, at least, called "Grand Canyon"; I don't know how much it is based on the actual Grand Canyon, but it was an interesting location, a mountain-y site with lots of lookout points and interesting views.

Nonetheless, it was difficult to take decent screenshots there. I eventually found myself on a transparent platform (built in analogy with the Grand Canyon Skywalk), looking down; I thought this was an interesting angle, so that's what you get as today's shot. Previously, I'd considered another view across a small plateau and towards an off-sim mountain range (see day 161 for more on those), and also a view of a large part of the entire estate, with three surrounding mountain ranges:

But I didn't go with those; the first, while looking nice, seemed a little bland, and I couldn't get the second to look very good (in fact, even with my draw distance set to the maximum of 1024m, I couldn't avoid clipping on the far mountains).

We did stay for a little longer, BTW, and while we were all gathered on the platform, I looked around and saw an interesting pool, too, so here's a bonus shot of that:

I'll have to come back and check that one out, I think.

Location: Grand Canyon (154, 170, 107) (GRAND CANYON)
