That's interesting, so maybe it scrolls at an altidude based on the place where it starts?  Assuming it's closer in when it arrives from Franklin and further away when it goes to Trevor...

That's what I thought too, but it's the other way around.

Hmm, well I guess it could be based on the destination!

I'm starting to really wonder where the f*ck North Yankton is.

These three shots show that the east coast doesn't extend any further than we think it does.

And this shot alludes to the fact that the west coast doesn't extend further either.

I'm starting to think that postcard was added to the site as a troll. Or the snowy area is so small that we haven't seen it yet, which would be weird.

Or the game has seasons and we may have already seen North Yankton without knowing it.

My guess was it'd be based on the highest point in between... but it doesn't fit with that.

This being the most likely.

Maybe sometimes in the northern region, rain is replaced by snow.
They simply could have added a new weather condition.

I'm wondering exactly the same dude, it has to be somewhere, surely it can't be a troll?

But apart from at the top of a mountain somewhere, I can't see anywhere it fits onto any of the maps made here!

Halfway up Chiliad is my best guess, we've only really seen the peak of it in detail, there's a lot of the east side which hasn't been shown.

If I'm not mistaken I think this is the east side of Mt Chilliad on the NE part of the map

The side of the Mount Chiliad you are seeing is the north side. The farmland you can see between the two roads attach to the Paleto screencap.

I noticed a new screen (to me at least) in the 2nd part of the gtavoclock leslie benzies interview.

It looks like it shows the carwash and the paper building in franklin's hood.

Actually I think this is the north slope, as Paleto is at the NW end of Chiliad and this spot is right after Paleto.

It is but there's also a huge valley which runs up between the north east and south east sides, you can see the cloud intersecting with it here:

Ah yeah I see it!

But the means that it should be just at the bottom of this image and there's no snow here at all!

I don't know if it is the whole map.
We have an image which say that Zancuro River comes from Mexico. So, the game map has a connection with Mexico boundary.
But that achievement image would make suppose that Los Santos and Blaine County are on an island, so that is not the whole map.
