    You would be heading in the right direction, but with a long way to go.

    I'm guessing somewhere near Snake River since that's where Tooga Lake is close to.

    That's close enough. The Tooga Cutacross is a winter road the connects the Peggo Road to the Spruce/Tooga Roads. Very handy if you know it's there because it cuts off a huge corner.

    Sorry if that one was a bit vague.

    Back to the Admiral.

    Where is this?
    What is the name of the building featured and the body of water it's on?
    Bonus points if you can name an infamous "made" famous event, that occurred here.
    Here being the location not the building.

    Chillon castle in Switzerland, "on the shore of lake Geneve".

    I had a link, but deleted it.

    Not Dracula's castle and not Romania.

    Here's another view.

    No was thinking of something more contemporary. "Funky Claude" recently passed away, January of this year.
    He was a major player when the gambling house "burned down with an awful sound." ;)

    On top of which mountain do you find this observatory?

    The larger observatory in your photo is the Canada-France-Hawaii-Telescope on Muana Kea, Hawaii.

    You're right. I think that wasn't hard to find, was it?

    It's Kinzua Bridge/Viaduct in Pennsylvania. It spanned the Kinzua Creek in McKean County. In 2003 it was destroyed by a tornado and now looks like this:

    If I'm right, I can't post another challenge yet. So someone else may do so.
