I found a crane.


This was too easy. I know this spot very well. I drive by it almost every night coming home from work. It's only half a mile or so from my house.

So cranes fly south, right? I flew south: did some flat trackin' thru the S-curves, and eventually came up with this a-maize-ing picture.

I think you need to go back to #267 and work your way there. I think there's some flat tracking involved too.

Hopefully the corn will still be there in a few days. Will look just like any other recently cut field soon.

Hint

O.K. hint time. I only shot two pictures yesterday, and they were both taken on the same road.

Sorry, they cut the corn yesterday. This tag was shot at the very southern end of Crane Road.

ride idea

Listen up friends, I was out riding some of Washtenaws finest dirt roads with some friends today and I had this thought.

Why don't we build a route with all of the Washtenaw county dirt tags in it, then one day we all get together, have breakfast and and ride to all of the tags in one day.

I think the group of five that I was leading today went past four or five of the Tags, that's what gave me the idea.

Feedback please!

Found it!

I found it earlier today, but wasn't sure if I was in the right spot:



Your map confirms, I was in the right place.

Id be in... so long as it isnt a contest to see who can get up the earliest... I lose those 100% of the time... lunch might be better than breakfast ???

On another note - I noticed that a few people live in or near Livingston county... as I am discovering there are many excellent (by south eastern michigan standards) dirt roads there as well.. any interest in a "Livingston County Dirt Road Tag-O-Rama"??

New Tag!

On my way home from the corn field, I found this cool Old Mill:



While I was taking the picture, the owners came out and chatted with me. They were super nice and told me about the history of mill. The mill is at the end of Scenic dirt road.

I guess we were both posting at the same time Toad! So now we have a double tag. I will defer to you, as you posted the tag first.
