    1. I agree. I was just there last week it and looks just like that type of weather. Definitely either there, Hawaii, or somewhere out of country.

    1. I also think they went to Colorado (Pike's Peak)!!!

    1. Hawaii has some extremely high and cold mountains (volcanic peaks). It's not all palm trees and beaches. There's an observatory on Mauna Kea at almost 14,000 ft. above sea level. It snows there.

    2. Hawaii has mountains (volcanoes) that do get snow on their peaks.

  6. Joy Anna looks so happy!! I hope they have a great time...where ever they are ;)

  7. I hope wherever they went, they are enjoying their time together.

  8. I hope they're having a happy honeymoon, just the two of them, making memories and enjoying new adventures together.

    1. Not Alaska. The video showed ponderosa pine trees behind them, which are not found in Alaska (but are prevalent in Colorado). In Alaska there would also be a lot more snow on the mountaintops at this time of year.

  10. I think they went to the Smokie Mountains because they both love the outdoors and it's not that far from home.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Definitely not the smoky mountains. Too much snow for this time of year.

      Delete
    2. Those mountains are too craggy and snowy to be the Smokies now. Maybe Colorado?

      Delete
  11. Smokie Mountains?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Smokies are in Tennessee. I'm from Knoxville. It doesn't look like the Smokies to me but I could be wrong.

      Delete
    2. Im from Knoxville also, and I agree, doesn't look like the smokey mountains. I would guess Colorado

  12. Colorado Springs

    ReplyDelete
  13. I want to say maybe Pikes Peak but I'm not sure. They look very happy together.😊

    ReplyDelete
  14. I just live the new couple. Blessings on your new life together!! I guess the Pacific Northwest..Canada? Seattle?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Buffalo bills grave in Colorado

    ReplyDelete
  16. Maybe the west coast of the USA or Hawaii. I think I see water in the distance. Where ever exactly, there is no doubt that this is a mountain top experience in their life together!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Definitely somewhere in Colorado. Looks like Rocky Mountain National Park

    ReplyDelete
  18. I see I'm not the only one who immediately thought, Wow, that looks like Colorado - and Colorado Springs! Wherever they are, I hope they are having a marvelous time.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Long's Peak Colorado, right?

    ReplyDelete
  20. I am so happy for both of you! I can't believe Joy-Anna is already married!

    ReplyDelete
  21. South Dakota or They could be at Austin parents campsite.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Colorado Mountains (Pikes Peak)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Looks amazing, wherever it is!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Smokey mountains!!! Tennessee

    ReplyDelete
  25. Yellowstone National State Park, Montana!

    1. I've been to the Alps in June. Not enough dark granite to be the Alps, nor more Alpine peaks in the background. The Alps go on and on once you're that high up. That looks like sandstone somewhere in the Rockies.

      Delete
    2. Guess you were wrong since we've now learned that they're in Switzerland!

      Delete
  27. Not sure where they are but sure can tell they are happy! Great picture of them!

    ReplyDelete
  28. The Rocky Mountains? Maybe Rocky Mountain National Park.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I was going to say Banff but there isn't enough snow.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Colorado!! He's wearing a hoodie. =)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm wondering from photograph Pikes peak, Colorado??

    ReplyDelete
  32. This pic is on top of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park, Maine!!

  33. Austin looks so much more relaxed!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Maybe Austria or Switerland

    ReplyDelete
  35. I wonder if this is the type of honeymoon Joy really wanted, seems more up Austins street? They did camping for bachelor/ette parties, and she didn't seem too thrilled with that, hope for her sake they are staying in some nice places, and not just roughing it all the time. Heard they were spied in Colorado.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I'm pretty sure Joy likes "roughing it"

      Delete
    2. You can stay at some very nice resorts or cabins in most National Parks. They wouldn't have to tent.

      Delete
    3. Why not? He asked for courtship sitting somewhere called "The Rock" saying it was their spot... May be they both enjoy it!

      Delete
    4. I think Austins the one who really enjoys it not Joy. Maybe its a novelty at the moment, but it will loose its shine for her very quickly, especially if she doesn't enjoy it too.

      Delete
  36. What a Awesome place this is, I hope you guys are having the best time ever.

  37. Canadian Rockies

    ReplyDelete
  38. Canadian Rockies. My husband and I went there last year for our 20th. Looks familiar.

    1. Not canada, I seriously doubt these two have left the country.

      Delete
    2. I think that Joy and Austin are choosing a roadtrip instead of going overseas

      Delete
    3. I hope that they have not come to Canada. The Federal park systems are free this year, as part of our 150th anniversary. It is very difficult to get a reservation. And reservations should go to tax paying Canadians.

      Delete
    4. 9:34 AM - You're not very neighborly, are you?

      Delete
    5. I think 9:34 is perfectly neighborly. More neighborly than the US is to Mexico right now.

      Delete
    6. @3:56- eye roll!!! We're talking about Americans vacationing in a Canadian National Park. Hardly the same as Mexicans coming to stay in the US illegally...

      Delete
    7. Thankfully most of us who are proud Canadians do not have the same attitude as 9:34. We love to share our beautiful country with all.

      Delete
    8. @sunnysideup
      Agreed! :-)

      Delete
  39. Piles Peak! I was there this weekend! If only I could have congratulated them.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Definitely somewhere cold with that snow on the mountain. Somewhere in Canada? Or maybe New Zealand?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Somewhere in Canada? Huh? You realize that it is summer in Canada, right.

      Very high mountains normally have snow on their peaks, even if they are in northern part of the US.

      Delete
    2. 'Very high mountains' in Canada have snow on their peaks too.

      Delete
    3. @Anon 9:21 It's not summer here in Canada and yes, we have snow on some mountains ;)

      Delete
    4. @4:52 .. Of COURSE, Canadian has the Rockies, for example, and their peaks would have snow on them. But Robyn assumed, that because there is now, it must be Canada. I was pointing out snow does not automatically mean it is in Canada.

      I seriously doubt that they went all the way to BC or Alberta or the Yukon to go camping. The other mountainous regions are not high enough to have no snow in June.

      Delete
  41. Considering I have a selfie from almost the very same spot, I'd say they are in Colorado.

    1. He, he...Maybe not? They're in Switzerland.

  42. looks like Pikes Peak in Colorado!

  43. If they wanted outdoors and mountains, they should have climbed Mt. Everest. It puts you closer to heaven.

    Maybe Alaska?? Great place for outdoors lovers!

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'm guessing Mars. It's lovely this time of year. And TLC would probably have paid, if allowed to follow and film.

    1. Lol, yes, definitely!

    2. My goodness! You're right...it looks just like it did when I visited last year! ;)

    3. All those red rocks are a dead giveaway! First Duggar in space. :)

  46. We live in Colorado really close to Rocky Mountain National Park and it looks familiar. :) But also think it could be Alaska or Montana maybe???

  47. The look on Joy's face says, "This is for the rest of my life!"

    1. Yes her look does say happy ever after!

    2. "I finally got to go somewhere without my family!!!" is what I'm reading in the look.

  48. Pikes Peak!!! Right in my backyard!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I say Norway.Denmark,Sweden,Switzerland or the like...can't wait to find out, they look so in love😍Happy for them...I hope Joseph has a short engagement like the rest, then maybe we will be blessed with two weddings his season🤗

  52. Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs. It looks like one of the pictures that my husband and I took when we visit. Jane

    ReplyDelete
  53. Looks like the top of Pikes Peak to me, so Colorado.

    ReplyDelete
  54. It couldn't be anywere oversea's because she would need a passport with her new name on it and it take a while to get it. And it can't be Canada because you need a passport for Canada too.

    1. What? Both Jessa and Jinger went on their their international honeymoons the week of the wedding and that would of been way before offcial name change etc.

      Delete
    2. So according to your theory, Jessa and Ben didn't really go to Europe and Jinger and Jeremy didn't really go to Australia?

      Delete
    3. Jinger and Jeremy went to Australia for their honeymoon without problem!?

      Delete
    4. They could have booked in her maiden name so she wouldn't need a new passport

      Delete
    5. So newlyweds never honeymoon overseas???

      Delete
    6. Seriously people, you book tickets in maiden name and use your old passport until after the honeymoon and when your offial wedding cert comes etc then you change your name and passport etc. You arnt officially name changed the day of your wedding.. Mine was a month later I think

  55. Grand Canyon!

  58. I would say Pikes Peak too :) live Colorado Mountains. I don't live in a mountain state so when I visited there and Tennesee I was so excited to see mountains

    ReplyDelete
  59. It looks like the coast of Maine to me.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Definitely not the Smokey Mountains... there's no snow in June

    ReplyDelete
  61. She doesn't need a new passport with her new name on it. When I left for my honeymoon overseas the day after my wedding, I used my passport with my maiden name on it. Plane tickets were booked with my maiden name. It takes a while to change documents after getting married.

    1. Wouldn't it be great if women just stopped changing their names altogether.

      Delete
    2. Either way is better than the hyphen.

      Delete
    3. Anon @ 4:28. There is no legal requirement to change your name on marriage. Many professional people don't, I work with several doctors who kept their maiden names. I suppose its such an ingrained tradition that it will take a long time for it to change.

      Delete
    4. 4:28. No it wouldn't be 'great if women just stopped changing their names altogether.' What would be great would be if a women could keep or change her name and a man could keep or change his name according to their decision, and not have your attitude of 'everyone should do what I think' imposed on them.

      Delete
    5. The name issue can get confusing though, when the parent's last name differs from the child's last name. In my extended family, thanks to several divorces and remarriages, my MIL, my husband, his brother all three have different last names. Sometimes that creates awkward situations and assumptions by others. It's particularly embarrassing when the children are early elementary, aware that others share their parents' last names, and have to keep repeatedly explaining why they don't to teachers, classmates, etc. It's the same in the high school years, when they're already just wanting to blend in/fit in- anything that makes you stand out in a "weird" way isn't so cool then.

  62. So, then how did Jinger get an instant passport with HER new name on it for her honeymoon in Australia?
    It must be great to spend you honeymoon in heavy pants and a fur parka...

    ReplyDelete
  63. it is yellowstone. and no it is not manie i was there and there is no snow on cadllic mountain right now?

    ReplyDelete
  64. Jessa would have needed a passport instantly for Italy and France too. She went out of the country and so did Jinger.
    I'm afraid in marrying outdoorsy Austin, Joy can no longer count on indoor plumbing every day. No way for a woman to live, IMO. (This is just my opinion.)

    ReplyDelete
  65. I asked this before and never received a response, is there a way to watch Counting On if you do not have cable tv? I know that Netflix (or one of those services) has a few old episodes but I would like to see the new season.

  66. I just watched the Forsyth family on Amazon. Yes, they have rules, but they are very caring and supporting of their children. Joy will be loved and experience an open relationship in this family.
