Search for this location on live maps, and the pin will be placed about 20miles east of an interstate. Follow the interstate north.
This interstate will end at another which runs east-west. Follow this one west. After a while it turns sharply south. At the same place, another long straight road (not an Interstate) runs NorthWest. Follow it until you reach a very famous landmark.
This landmark is very famous for 2 of its feats, but they were surpassed only 10 years later. By what?
The ‘what’ is beside a lake. What’s the connection between its name and the name of the landmark in 12?
