Yep, when it stopped it would have been too dark to get a decent picture
But I have a great tag (In my mind any way) . I'll have it up this afternoon. Sorry for the delay.

Mission Impossible Tag - Your mission find the tag before someone else does. (Play mission Impossible theme in your head while reading the following)

Tag


Here’s your clue:
The York River is fed by two rivers, one of them gets its name from the four tributaries that feed it.
The remains of this poor old bridge goes over one of those tributaries.
FYI – Yahoo maps does a better job of naming streams & rivers than Google does.

You got further with this than I did. Figured it was just one of those tags that you either know by sight or you don't.

Virginia Tag O Rama

Ga-Raab! Schnabba had it figured out though it turned out to actually be on the South side. Location is at S. Roxbury Mill Rd where it once crossed the Po River in Spotsvania county between US-1 and I-95.


North side looked like this:

Yeah, they added those red signs since Google went through there. I checked both sides of the bridge but thought the south side with the pedestrian warning sign was better

Tag goes live again if there is no new tag location after three days, unless there is serious weather or some other extenuating circumstance.

Tag Dammit

I do apologize for the delay. I was riding my butt off and didn't stop to work out a clue. Here are photos of the Tag location:




This dam was constructed in 1901 by the Virginia Soapstone Company.

Given the weather, I'm sure someone has grabbed this and just not posted yet, eh?
