    Great day to ride so I tagged the Emma Kunz Museum, that no one wanted to drive by since Feb.

    20170729_131234.jpg

    Then I just wandered around with no particular place in mind. I happened to stumble across this old building. I've ridden by it hundreds of times but it's hidden from view by a newer building and I had never seen it before.
    I can understand that no one wanted to ride around downtown Belleville to get the last one, but this one is on a very, very popular motorcycle road, so no reason this one should last long.
    Only hint, and it's nothing related to the building but if you find it, you'll find the building. "Salt Lick Point Trail"

    (still riding to lunch tomorrow if anyone wants to tag along)

    Salt Lick Mine & Trail in Valmeyer, IL just off Bluff Rd. I had to wade through all the Harleys to get the picture this weekend.

    And the new tag...

    This M-47 Patton tank is named after the general who's 3rd army captured the town of Gros-Bieberau, Germany in early 1945. Today it sits in the Illinois sister city of that German town.

    Figured you would but I loved the history behind it too much to ignore.

    Plus, when I went to my original choice to snap a photo with bike it had a new no trespassing sign. :(

    Me too. I have been inside the building next to that tank many years ago. I may be able to grab it this Saturday, if someone else doesn't.

    It's not Powder Valley. It's a county park, look east and south

    Bump... any hints? I'm usually pretty good at figuring out the location of these but still stumped on this one.

    Giant city state park ? That might be to far though.
