    It's a grey area on the 'map', but if you toggle satellite it's there, just slightly southwest of where Rachel is supposed to be.

    It's up right now on my computer.

    Roswell NM is a cool one to try. Looks like a big air force base there.

    Tried the White House for giggles. The higher up sat view you can find it and it looks cool, but as you get closer in it's been intentionally blurred.

    There's quite a few places like that on Google Maps, where the "map" is grayed out, and the photo is intentionally blurred until you try to zoom close... then it says they don't have that imagery yet. A few areas in the Nellis AFB Range Complex, an area in the NAS Fallon EW range, Whiteman AFB, and Tonopah, NV (the original home of the F-117).

    Those are irrigated crops. There is a well in the center, and yes those are roads conecting them.

    I don't think all the blurry parts are meant to cover things up. There are areas around here that you can't zoom in on very good, but they're just rural.

    Oh, I agree, not all the blurry pics are concealing something. But the ones I listed specifically are blurred to conceal, and they'll always say "Sorry, we don't have that imagery yet" or words to that effect when you try to get in close. I looked those specific ones up (among others) because... a: I've been there, and b: I know there's "sensitive" stuff there.
