This is going to be a good one. I had a chance to poke around on google earth, and have a couple possible leads, but need to go check them out in person. I'll have to see if I have time one of these days.

This is hilarious. Hmmm...that looks like a golf course. Maybe something around Sharyland, I have no idea.

Finally, we have a new player! I'm glad you got possession back and put up a new tag!

How's it going. WB tells me the clue may be on the difficult side. Should I ride over and take another, more revealing picture?

I don't have google earth on this computer, but it's clearly visible in the satellite image viewer on the National Weather Service website and, it's been featured in one or more publications/presentations put out by the UTPA administration.

Don't worry about him just yet. He tends to whine about every tag that'ss been posted up that wasn't his. After a couple days he figures it out. Those of us that have posted tags have gone through this already.

If we all give up after a week or two then we will need clues.

Found it! Dang, I'm good.

I've never been to that location but I guess never a better time than the present.

Now if I can only post a pic before someone else.

Unlike, ahem, scofflaws I did not park on the sidewalk.

It's actually a very nice little park; a walkway, picnic tables. However, I get the sense that it is not a city park but perhaps for persons working in the buildings there. There was a security guard in a patrol unit giving me a bit of the evil eye.

Dang!! Used to work close to that place and driven by it many times!!! It's funny how non-observant we can be when driving a cage. Anyway, nice grab and looking forward to the new tag!

Congrats. My wife works for the folks who own the lake. While it's nominally "private" I think the guard is primarily to interrupt people who might meet at the lake for a bit of hanky-panky. Semi-naked people embarrass the folks whose office windows face the lake.

Here's how it's done boys & girls. I present to you the latest tag. 'Kinda sad that the grounds are in such a sad state.
