I figured it out this morning but I don't want to go there from here to get it. It did take some internet searching though.

Ah, I know it. Took some Googling though.

Y'all snatch it up. I'm heading in the opposite direction this weekend.

Can I play too?



This is the old courthouse on the square in Lawrenceville. There are several historic markers here including one for Gwinnett County (which required a fence around the square to keep out livestock), Button Gwinnett, and Charles Henry Smith (known through his editorials as "Bill Arp" and was the Judge Advocate for Macon in 1864). Sadly, this is the only decent pic, but at least my batteries lasted long enough to get it.

New tag will be posted tomorrow afternoon.

Actual tag

Ok, this pic isn't that bad I guess and since it's technically the tag I should post it (could not get my bike in the pic though since the those parking spaces were taken).

New tag

Here's the new tag. I wanted to get one farther away from the other tag, but had to SETTLE for this one (1st hint).

Here's the bike shot in the parking lot.


Hmm...is it another covered bridge?



No, it's an uncovered bridge...(yeah, lame I know, I'll stick to my day job).



Up river shot:



Clues:
  • This is in a very, very, small but real state park (just not far from a bigger one).
  • This is a popular fishing and rafting/canoing spot.
  • The bridge is visible from Google earth
  • Along the RIVERSIDE near the entrance (which is dirt/gravel by the way for you gold wingers out there) there is an elementary school.
  • If you could see far enough upstream you might be able to see a rainbow, and further still a dam.
Happy hunting!

Thanks for the welcomes!

MrMac, if the previous tag was in your backyard, this one has got to be right underneath you.

Settles Bridge State Park

Couple more shots.

This Tag was at Settles Bridge State Park up off PIB and Suwanee Dam Road. It is a beautiful spot. I actually kayak fish the hooch pretty regularly and didn't even know this park was here.

The little black dot in distance in the above photo is a lucky b*stard wading fly fisherman. Now if I could only figure out how to tow my Tarpon 14 behind the Dakar, I'd be all set.

A New Mascot for the New Tag?

Not sure what's up with Lilo, but it looks like she's on a nice trip.

Do we want another mascot (if only as a stand in until Lilo gets back)?
