Hotel Turkey in Turkey, Texas is an iconic and historic part of our region. The hotel has an incredible history. It all started in 1927. Before the hotel could be completed, it got slammed by a tornado. Not to be deterred, construction resumed and a few months later the hotel was open. This weekend, it's the site of a massive benefit bringing together several amazing artists for a great cause.

Can You Guess These Towns From Their Satellite Photos?

I'm always down for a good brain challenge. This one however got the best of me.
It's always a fun time looking up address or cities and seeing them from a satellite point of view. You start pointing out landmarks and things you recognize.

One thing you don't account for however is something looking bigger or smaller than you seemed to think it was. So we started grabbing a bunch of these satellite pictures of cities and towns around Amarillo.

As we looked at them, we thought to ourselves, "how fun would this be to actually have to GUESS what these places are?". So away we went.

Go ahead and try to see how many you can guess correctly!
