Hey there Ed! I was just dropping by the Colter Bay article on en.wp and the photo caught my eye. The image is misidentified. Rather than Colter Bay, the image is actually the marina at Signal Mountain Lodge, which is about ten miles south of CB. Several years ago, I used to head up the HR department for the GTLC. (Colter Bay was my home away from home for four years.) For comparison, you can check out these two images:

It must have been nice being able to spend a lot of time up there. I am certain this is Colter Bay for several reasons. 1) I didn't go to Signal Mountain Marina. 2) I was logging gps coordinates when I took the picture. The coordinates are linked on the image's description page, here's a link to them so you can see exactly where I was standing when I took the picture. 3) you can see more water through the trees. This is consistent with the narrow spit of land in Colter Bay, Signal Mountain doesn't have a similar feature.

For comparison, here are a couple of other images from Colter Bay. They aren't from exactly the same location but they are close enough that you can see some of the same trees. In particular, look at the clump of trees a little to the left of center in this first link. Notice how the one in back is a bit taller and rounded on the top with shorter trees to the left and right in front of it, the one on the left being shortest. If you look at my picture (view the full resolution version) you can find that same clump of trees in the center of the picture.

  • I think it's kinda humorous to see the scenario in full. Here, we have a tourist attempting to provide logistical information about the park and range to an individual who lived there for four years and oversaw training of park and range history and logistics to ensure accurate and consistent information for tourists, employees, wranglers, and tour operators. I've learned that tourists generally hold sentimental value to their visit and experiences in the valley. Their memories are adamantly maintained, however accurate or inaccurate they may be. To dismiss or discredit these experiences may oftentimes only serve to minimize a very personal time in a tourist's life. To that end, I encourage employees to simply reply with statements such as, "Well, I'm glad you were able to experience the park and enjoy your visit. I hope you'll be able to return next year." Then leave it at that. If you ever get back, make sure to visit Signal Mountain. You'll find the best windsurfing conditions in the bay there. Cindamuse (talk) 17:13, 5 July 2012 (UTC)
