Looking the opposite way:


Pic of the bridge:


The hide in the guardrail:




Marked with an "A":


Like so:



The clue: Where Halfway meets The Plains, you'll find the correct Rock Hill. Take it to the bridge, look in the guardrail behind the last post on your left and you'll find Ali.

Happy Holiday Tagging!

Kind of a cool morning for a ride.
The bridge is newer than the one on Google.

I was actually heading for a different tag when I noticed the "Road Narrows Next 3 Miles" sign. Figured it was worth checking out, and once I did, thought others would like the Halfway to gravel route.

Ali is at the base of the historic marker.

Find the historic bridge, find the marker, find Ali.

I know exactly where this is...... and I can tell you from experience you can get some pretty good air coming over that bridge.

Grabbed at the Hibbs Bridge, snickersville turnpike etc etd. No air was caught since I was experiencing the "fun of riding a slow bike fast", err, slow...






The new tag is in the same vicinity in case you're mad that you missed out on a nice ride today. The name of the stretch of gravel rhymes with "Fake Pill Toad". This little structure is 4 paces off the road in front of the good stone inn. The gator is on the sill of the left-hand window. Watch your step




Is this thing a cooling hut?

Ride to hide:


Ali is nestled in the white rocks at the base of the tree:


Covered with leaves, marked with an "A", like so:


Hide to ride:


Ali and I had to figure where to go next, and Ali asked about taking a balloon ride. To do that I had to find a ballonport, at a flying horse farm. . ..

Happy Tagging!

And a bonus:
For those inclined to try, the nearby water crossing was at least 2 feet deep. . .. Don't ask how I know. . ..
