Good job SG but need town info please.
I now know way to many locations of Curiosity shops and Church of the Assumption/cemetery.

It's northwest of Belle Plaine. The owner came out and welcomed me to Assumption.

No wonder I missed it! I was ridding in a totally different direction.

Fun ride though. Just south of Stillwater they were cleaning up some trees that had been blown over. One had fallen over the train tracks and what remained looked all ragged and splintery. I think the train did its own cleanup of that one.

Way back when I was a kid you used to be able to buy a burger in Assumption.

Great job on getting the tag.

I didn't mean to make that one difficult, figured someone would recognize it right off since it's so close to the cities. It does seem to be fairly Googleproof though. Google and Google Maps are totally unaware of Assumption, MN. Here's a Street View image:


You'd think maybe Google Image Search might turn up something but apparently that doesn't look at Street View images:


The only search that would find it was "Assumption Cemetery" - the map is correct but it is incorrectly labeled "Hancock, MN.

Green bike, yellow jacket. That was me. I saw sooooo many bikes along the way I thought I was going to be sniped. My plan was to snap the shot and go home to post but with all the two wheeled traffic, even on Nerstrand Blvd, I decided to brave the mosquitoes and post from there. Very nice riding in that area.
