I know exactly where this one is, but church is in the morning, so I'll probably have to pass on this one.

Where is it?

I looked at the clues for this latest Tag and couldn't make it work.

Bears Den Rd over near Warrenton fits the names, but it is definitely not north or in the mountains and I could not find any parking area as shown.

I found no other Cubs Den, Blacks Den, Blacks Cave, Bears Cave, etc. roads.

I'm Stumped.

Oh I got it !
It's at the Wanderlust Hostel just North of Gunnison, CO in the Rocky Mountains and they had a Black bear problem last year that they had to track back to it's den.

Well......close, right?

Grab - Bears Den Park

Just off Blueridge Mountain Rd at the top of the mountain east of Berryville. Sweet spot!


And a wider shot ...


Switching bikes and going to set the new tag now .... maybe a little dirt .... we will just have to wait and see what I find

New Tag

Our Christmas duck at the base of a sign post ....


Covered up ....


And a step back ....


The duck is at the base of the End State Maintenance sign. The road our duck friend is on shares it's name with a city in Oregon that could be described as being an uptown home town, with a population of over 90,380 people. The road is a 600 series road that the sum of the numbers equals 14.

Happy Duck Hunting!

BTW - you should ride through the water and clean your wheels before making the grab!

Nearly Bruced me !

I figured where RD2 was last eve and almost rode my bike in to work today to go grab it at lunch. But I was afraid that I would not have time to relocate the little Dude.

Bob just can't seem to let those close ones sit !

New tag!

Here is Rudy, the red...er...orange nose rain duck sitting on top of this rotting log...


Covered up...


A few steps back...


Obligatory bike shot...


Obligatory speedometer shot...


Now for clues...
The name of the road is the same last name as a guy's who writes for the daily show with Jon Stewart and also for Mad magazine.
The tag is on a sharp bend in the road but not on the named road itself which also has a curve there. If you study Google maps view of the road in question it will/should become clear.

Also, this is the 182nd tag. Lets see if we can get 200 before the New year! That's 18 more tags in 33 days.
