"I've Been Everywhere" Game for 4/18/11

"I've Been Everywhere" Game for 4/18/11
The current batch is as as follows:
Randomized:

10 I'm Such A Square
8 All Aboard the Trolley
2 On the Presidential Trail
3 Bloody Conflict
4 No Land In Sight
5 High in the Sky
1 Reflection
9 APB
6 In the Slammer
7 Shot Here<-Today's topic
This game will be open until tomorrow morning. (The previous one will remain open until I have time to score it, either today or tomorrow morning)

The topic is Level 7 - Shot Here<-Today's topic

This is near one of several settings where the movie was shot. It is in the USA or Canada.
To play, please respond or guess as to the state/province and what region within the state/province this background scene can be found.
Usual rule for one point scoring. Also an incorrect guess of the neighboring state/province where a few scenes of this movie were also shot will be worth one point:


Good luck!

Please spoilerize!

Don't know. Loved the movie.

Pretty sure its not Florida.

I'll go with North Dakota.

No town. I wouldn't get it right even if I guessed.
In the end, they will all pretty much taste the same.

Oooooh! Is this the game where the correct answer is finally "T-Girl's backyard"? :mrgreen:

Well, yeah, it's got to be somewhere up in the Rockies, but I can't say exactly where, so I'll go with Billings, Montana.

Suitguy is not bitter.

The problem, then, is that such calls do not address an opposition audience so much as they signal virtue. They talk past those who need convincing. They ignore actual facts and counterargument. And they are irreparably smug.

Hmm. Pretty sure it was on location in South Dakota. That might be part of the Black Hills.

Black Hills of South Dakota.

Maybe that's what they want you to think ...
... but I'm going with first impression to say Black Hills, Rapid City, SD

I think it was one of the Dakotas...since snaxx is looking for a "region" it makes me think that it might be South Dakota and something like the Badlands or the Black Hills...I'll say, the Black Hills, SD. I know that kusch is in North Dakota, but I wonder if he was used as an extra in the movie?

Dances With Wolves is one of my favorite films. I know most of it was shot in South Dakota but some scenery is from around Jackson Hole, Wyoming. I have to figure they'd put up a sign only for where primary filming was done though. It's certainly not the plains, so it's probably Spearfish Canyon, near Deadwood, South Dakota.

I believe much of it was shot in South Dakota so that would be my guess. Probably some of it was in or near the Black Hills and Badlands National Park in southwest South Dakota but that is about as specific as I can be. Not much else out there...

If I'd seen the photo without the sign, I would have said, "Hey, that looks like the Black Hills." Since the sign is there, I will say, "That's in the Black Hills, South Dakota, which puts it somewhere in the area of Rapid City."

Okay, pretty sure it was in South Dakota and I don't really know a lot of cities in South Dakota so I'll just go with Pierre

You know, I really should have looked at the large photo before answering. I know that part of it was shot in Kansas, but even Toto would know that photo wasn't in Kansas.

Since you said region, I'm guessing the Black Hills in South Dakota.

That's where a lot of the film was shot.
