Look at google maps in the terrain feature. You can then see where the bridges cross the river and switch to satellite view to see how big the river is at that bridge. That limits the options considerably

Of course you will have to link them up with a whole bunch of curvy, hilly, rural, scenic mountain roads to figure out which one is the right one.

Hmmm...I got picked today to serve on a jury for the rest of the week , but tomorrow they let us go at 1pm. If nobody plans on snagging it tomorrow, I have a pretty good idea which bridge it is.

Just jump up and yell; fry him, I want to see someone fry. They'll probably send you home early.

Or you'll get to spend some "quality" time with the bailiff in a holding cell.

I'm playing!! I've been out of town. I got me some new warm riding pants so I'm ready to tackle this winter weather. Although it is nice today. Saw a couple of riders commuting.

Are you working today? I need to do some work around the house (painting trim, finishing my stairs to the basement, and other shit Coates would call bitch-work) but I could be persuaded...

Some really fun back roads all through there.

New tag coming shortly, but to give you an idea of the direction from this tag, I hit the last Coates/Willy-B tag, followed by the previous Coates tag before continuing in that direction for thie new tag. Fun stuf the whole way .

New Tag

This tag is a Chattahoochee National Forest overlook.


Make the short hike to the top to the ring:


Once at the top it looks like this:


Now a far lesser known fact about this location is that during the 3-5% of full on the waxing crescent moon phase between the 13th and 15th hour of the day coupled with proper relaxation techniques the gravitational pull in the center of the ring is roughly 1/10 of the normal pull. Kind of a freaky feeling:
