I don't know if this is the right place so please move if necessary, but I just found this on Huff Post and thought it appropriate to some of the strat seekers here.

Yes, they're real, but many of those photos are heavily color adjusted (increased saturation, mostly). Wikipedia has more realistic representations:

Do not go and be underwhelmed. ;)

Seriously though, amazing looking place, even without Photoshop:

Thanks for the additional links, and I suspected as much, that just popped up in my news feed and I've been otherwise distracted by my guitar all day. A good day even if it's snowing.....again....again.
