Pavement Ends

Here is another of the 'pavement ends' tags. You'll only have to venture a few feet of the pavement to get it. This East-West road runs like a dotted line across most of southern Washtenaw County. It is very discontinuous. This little two mile stretch just north of Milan is half paved and half dirt. The Ann Arbor Railroad crosses the dirt half as it heads from Dundee to Ann Arbor.

This was a toughy...

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...

absolutely gorgeous day for riding, have a great weekend...

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?

Its all good Scorpion

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...

Talking Definite chill in the air this AM

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...

What a beautiful day!

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?

not exactly the 50 degree sunny day the weatherman promised..... but at least it isnt snowing. yet.


Slightly south and east of the Gregory road tag I found this rather intersting rock formation.

Keep a close eye out for Delhi-henge (HINT)

Llamas and turkeys

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.
