Contest #273 answer: Pic de Bugarach, France

If you can read this there a two possibilities:
1. The Apocalyps did not (yet) happen
2. You are in the south of France at the Pic de Bugarac….

According to some ‘believers’ this location is -together with Sirince in Turkey- the ‘place to be’ if you wish to be saved by some aliens from the Mayan Apocalypse. (or something like that… ;-))

At the moment I am writing this the place is crowded with journalists to capture the moment that won’t happen.

Contest #272 answer: Jumbo glacier and Valley, British Columbia, Canada

The Jumbo Glacier and Valley is a large unspoiled area and according to the Ktunaxa legend, this area is the home of the grizzly bear spirit.

In spite of some fierce local opposition the decision has been made -after 20 years of deliberation- to develop a huge Ski resort in this area.

Thanks Adam for the heads-up.
