Repeating photo and clues for page turn.

Gardiner River near Boiling River thermal feature, Yellowstone NP via Mammoth H.S. Wyoming USA

I was thinking something a bit more earthy. But I have to go now, I've left the kettle on around the corner.
Cryptic clues in my previous post are significant.
Not Colorado but I am in an adjoining state.
I'm standing in one state looking at the background in another a few kms to the north.

Not the San Juan River. I'm north of all four states that the San Juan runs through.
This is a much smaller affair and contains a thermal feature near my location.
I'm probably standing at or very near the border of two states.

This has gone on long enough and I've run out of clues. It's the Gardiner River in Yellowstone NP, northern Wyoming near the Montana border.
Also contains the Boiling River thermal feature near my location. I've posted both spots previously.
Anyone can go next.

A bit too cryptic for this old head I’m afraid. I found the Kettle River that is a tributary of Columbia River, in Oregon or Washington I think. I couldn’t go anywhere after that.

That's still a really large target with very little to go on. My research suggests Kington Recreation Ground (a cricket ground) in Kington, Herefordshire UK.
Which I'm confident is 100% wrong.

Country is correct. It's much less obscure than your suggestion

Nope. Snow Canyon is real sandstone. This is more glued together dirt.

North and west and in a different state.

so far young Eggs you are closest to the pin! You may yet win by default with your pithy observation, if no-one else has a crack..

OK: Hint time. Nepal, and the foreground on the right hand side is the giveaway as to which bridge between two well travelled villages it is.
The new pic is the Village on right of screen that you are travelling to via this bridge.

I think the town in your second photo is Tengboche. There is a bridge on either side, one over Imja Khola and one over Dudh Kishinev. I’m guessing it’s one of those.

Thanks. Auto correct made a bit of a mess of some of the spelling but I guess you got the idea,
There's a very recognisable peak in this photo but which mountain was I on in North America?
