Where am us?

While we have busied ourselves in relative obscurity, outside of the range of the naked eye, in remote uninhabited terrain, it is possible to give an account of what we have done. Based on the testimony of those who have been there, we have reconstructed what we believe is a faithful representation of where we were at the time that we were there.
