    I think I toured every "east west road just north of Milan" and finally....

    I think it must be a Scorpion "file photo" as all the trees have leaves miraculously!!! BTW its Arkona Rd.

    And next up is off Sylvan Rd., nice little stretch of twisty hills near this tag...

    Good job on the "Pavement Ends" tag. And yes this is a "file photo" I guess. It was shot while out tagging earlier this year. I always shoot a few extra tags in case there is one I don't care for, or in case I find it difficult to capture one after finding one. This was the case last weekend, so I felt obligated to post something in order to keep the game moving. I have no idea if the W.C. tag-a-rama requires new tags to have any particular date of origin? :huh

    I have shot a few extra myself that I haven't used, at first I thought I had found the tag and was trying to figure out the angle... then it dawned on me, no leaves!! The unique Windows on the house were the proof. Lol, it's all good I'm all for getting on the bike for any reason, especially with weather like this...

    In Ypsi on monkey business, thought I would grab this tag up...

    ...and this one, the road shares a name with Sonny Crocketts partner, just north of something you might enjoy a nice German beer from...

    I can't believe someone didn't grab this tag before me today:

    I then wandered back to Northville and got this shot of my bike under a big deer skull on 6-mile just east of Sutton

    OK - next up. Enjoy the weather before the snow flakes arrive on Thursday.

    The new tag. Located between the last tag and Dexter on Gregory Rd. Say hi to the Llamas for us! Aplacas? Hairy Michigan camels?

    Thanks for knocking off the tag today and giving me a good reason for a Sunday ride. The llamas were cool. One of them gave me a long stare-down before losing interest.

    On the way to my new tag, I had to stop to let this gaggle cross the road. If you look carefully, the 2nd from the left is actually a turkey. He was waddling along with the rest.

    I then got my tag on the Raisin River in Manchester on Sharon Hollow.

    I was out for a few hours and never saw another bike yesterday. Usually see at least one.

    I went all Prince Fielder on DELHI henge... UTL!!!
    And then i drive miles of Sharon HOLLOW looking for this damn bridge over the Raisin River to no avail... alas, let me try Sharon VALLEY in the direction of river flow and bingo! Finally found it... never did find the sun today however. Had to try the new winter gloves, worked like a charm, down to 53.... fun ride though, thanks guys! Toad, im going to need you to narrow down Delhi though. lol.:1drink

    And, on the bridge theme... east of Dancer, this is Bel Liberty Farm in the background.

    Oops - sorry about the Hollow-Valley mixup. I saw "Valley" on the map, but must have gotten "Hollow" stuck in my head on the ride back!

    Glad you found it anyway.:clap

    It was a fun ride, had to do some exploring to find it, took me some places I haven't been, and I think that's the reason, or one of them, that I love to get out...

    Thanks Toad, I rode past it three times, actually stopped once! I had the orientation wrong, was looking at the driveway in background as Delhi Rd. It wasn't adding up until I looked closer at your post.... will get the pic as soon as I can get back out. Columbo I'll never be....lol.

    The Bel Liberty farm house is very nice.

    Fire88Dog: How did you get it to look so close to your bike? I either got the wrong house or have a lot to learn about photography.


    I kept looking for another dirt road bridge, but ran out of time on my pre-church ride this morning.
    Instead, I found this blown-over structure near the northeast corner of Washtenaw County. Didn't see as many Chubby people as I expected.

    Full Disclosure: This was actually my second tag of the morning after I realized that my first was well north of the Washtenaw county line! I'll save that for another thread.
