About the thread header: they are on rotation, every time you refresh, a new one is selected. If you want to contribute a banner, just make one (approximately 900x400) and post it. I'll add it to the rotation folder.

From the other OT:

If you click Oaxaca on that site, it describes the place as "rugged terrain (including 3 mountain ranges) that surrounds this area has kept it fairly isolated."

Valhalla has mountain ranges all around it & is in an isolated canyon.
