That was a good one! I was in a totally wrong county
You got it......that Hotel was a "Holiday Inn" when I was "Elk Hunting" and we spent a week there....they had tickets for free meals at the casinos every night, so we ate kinda' "high on the hog".........great place to visit and there is still a working gold mine close by at "Victor".....we also went up to the top of "Pike's Peak" while we were there........quite a view and we rode the "Cog Railroad" down from there.......took great photos from the car on the way...I was always clicking pics. and the guys gave me a "nickname"...."KODAK".....

Here's a couple of new ones.
The first is difficult if you have not been there yourself.
The second is a little easier but may help solve the first

It's a cupola, but I still haven't figured out what dome it's on yet.
Any guesses about the one I posted before yours?

No! I haven't a clue about yours.....I tried to figure yours out but so far no luck.......can see the bridge and looks like a river crossing...I'll keep trying. Here's some photos you'll get a kick out of.....

I took the "cupola" photo on Thanksgiving Day, if that will give you a starting point.....this is one of only a very few........and the color is "real gold leafs".....was painted over with a sickly green during WWII....I'll show the whole bldg. after you come up with it........

Your pic is the current state capitol dome of West Virginia, in Charleston, right?

Here's a clue to help figure out the ones I posted.

The hill that you can barely see along the right edge of the second picture is the result of a series of plutonic intrusions followed by erosion of the softer surrounding sedimentary rocks.

That and the rapids and the bridge should give it away. Here's a wider perspective.

You got it right....good guess......I was in Charleston, my home state, for Thanksgiving and the day was like Summer..........

http://www.legis.state.wv.us/Educational/photo_gallery/photo.cfm

Click the small thumbnails under "Capitol Photo Gallery" for some beautiful photos by others.....
you can cursor over them to pick one you may want to view larger

The Building
The exterior of the classical-styled building is buff Indiana limestone. More than 700 train carloads of limestone and 4,640 tons of steel were used in its construction. The magnificent 293- foot gold dome which tops the structure is five feet higher than the dome of the U.S. Capitol. The entire dome is gilded in 23 ? karat gold leaf applied to the copper and lead roof in tiny 3 3/8 inch squares.

Here's, definitely, a wild guess.....is it the Niagra Falls area from Ontario, Canada?????? ...............

Nope. This is not a tourist trap.
