Quite a contrast of style between the fountain and the tower.

some puzzles require brute-force backtracking technique (Your Way, JC); these are of no interest whatsoever to path finders because there
simply is NO reasonable path .. your challenge is an idle taunt JC.

I agree with kobold. It took some time before I saw the wisdom of his advice but now I agree.

site puzzle a messy SE=8.4, buried @ SSTS=23
my path not much better than SG:
1. aahs[(5=8)i6-(8=1)f6-f8=*c8-(178=6)c239-i9=i3]
||
(51'-9)be8=f9-f3=h3-h6=(9-7)a6=(7-5)d6=i6 # -5i3, -9a9
2. [(75)d6,(58)i6,(81)f6 - More...

step 2 got mangled:

2. aals[(75)d6,(58)i6,(81)f6 - (1348=*9)de7f89-f3==a6]
||
(2)f9-f4=(2-3)i4=b4-(38)b57=HW(71)b5/h56.(9)a6 # -7a6

Hello everyone!
I agree, Shiela!
It's an inspired photo, thanks Sue!

What I found interesting was not only the contrast, but the comparison. Both the tower and the water come to points at the top, from wider bases.

The path above is for P101, of course !
28/Jul/13 4:26 PM
not a path JC (also unreadable - you need to upgrade your software to make your forcing nets more legible!)

P101 (eureka path):
1. [(4)a9=*df9-(4=8)f8-a8=HW(54)a5/b57.(8)a9] - (5)a9=a5-(5=3)g5

(4-8)h9=h6 # -3h6
2. DK: (2378=4)ach3 - (4)i3=i78 # -3b5

3. (4)h3=h9-SW(48)f8/dfi7,fh9=(8)a9-(8=237)a13c3 # -3h3
4. (48=2)af8 - (27)a1,(75)i1,(54)f1,(48)f8 # -8i8
