If your not familiar with this, google it. Its a cool event in Detroit that more people need to know about.

I was just thinking that this would be a cool place for a tag. Only a couple of miles from my house.

Wow... looks like we all just missed each other. I just got back.... Car was sitting there idling too! haha. My wife and I drove around and looked at every water tower down there! Got alot of good photos today.

I also had the Thunder in mind for a future tag. Go get it!

No, not by river. Your thinking too big. Google the two highlited words in my first post. The second one is mispelled on purpose.

That place sounds frickin sweet! Must say, good job on the tag. I had no idea that place existed, especially so close by. I'll be back in town Wednesday, I'm going to try to grab the tag then. Even if I miss the tag I want to go check it out. More tags like that would be great. So much has been lost in Detroit, too much.

Got it!

It was chilly today but I rode to work so I could go get the tag after:



I had to loop around the whole park (accidentally driving about 1/4 mile the wrong way down a one-way street) to find the entrance. I wanted to drive up the path and take a look around but a cop rolled past me, giving me the stink-eye, so I left.

Anyway, here's the new tag, from a part of Detroit that's still alive and kicking:



Shouldn't be too difficult to recognize for grads of a certain school.

It's warm this week, someone's gotta go get the tag! Here's a hint: the building is old, but it's still one of the main centers of education in Detroit.
