Got One



Stommel N. of Vreeland.

Waterloo Rec. Area has the best dirt roads in Washtenaw Co. Strommel is not one of them.

Here is one of the better roads just outside of A 2.
After you get your picture, follow Tubbs road down to the Huron river and Huron river drive.
Just after taking this pic I passed a herd of about 8 deer just off the side of the road.

Loving that we have a Washtenaw photo tag! I've been wanting to get out around the Waterloo area and do some more exploring. Fell in love with the area a few months ago and almost bought a house on Clear Lake Rd, but it fell through

tags of sections

Gas Guy!! i love the directions of following up after the tag. Thats part of what I really wanted to do was to expose the beauty and uniqueness of so many of our dirt roads in Washtenaw County!! so many times i think i want other people to ride a certain section to see some beautiful swamps or a patch of blooming lilacs... im getting emotional haha.

anyway;
I LOVE THE SUGGESTED FOLLOWUP ROUTING!

Wow!! What a great road!!

I kept the xL in the water runoff ditch for an even more offroad experience.

For the next tag, i have a close easy one, but its kind of a dark photo.
Or i could do something a little more off the beaten path tomorrow morning.
You guys decide....

You make the call, either way is fine.
Nice xl by the way !!
I'm glad you enjoyed the road, as you wind down towards the Huron river you almost forget you are so close to metropolitan life.

So here's a tag you can see and HEAR on AM 359. "Y" "I" never tried, i can't say.

That's a FEDERALLY maintained two-track! Not many around here.

If youre in ann arbor, this is techncally an "YIPPS"ilanti mailing address

I'm guessing this is around willow run???
I was tied up today and probably tomorrow, so maybe someone else can find it.

you are correct!

but it's not too close. there's enough room to begin an approach in an airplane from this point
