Where is that cemetery? .... Way closer to your home than Loveland is.
Link with some cemetery history

And a Water and Power sculpture link

I was out riding today and kept checking in here for the new tag. Didn't see one but had a great 350 mile DS loop anyway. This prolly wouldn't have worked as the new tag anyway...




Cheers

So where is the TAG now-a-days?
Looks like atokad got it and never moved it to a new local.

Originally owned by Jacob and Joseph. I wonder if they had a brother named Braun? I can't believe I used to eat that stuff when I was a kid!
