Wild Goose Chase...

I went all Prince Fielder on DELHI henge... UTL!!!
And then i drive miles of Sharon HOLLOW looking for this damn bridge over the Raisin River to no avail... alas, let me try Sharon VALLEY in the direction of river flow and bingo! Finally found it... never did find the sun today however. Had to try the new winter gloves, worked like a charm, down to 53.... fun ride though, thanks guys! Toad, im going to need you to narrow down Delhi though. lol.

And, on the bridge theme... east of Dancer, this is Bel Liberty Farm in the background.

The riding days are dwindling, lets get a few more!!!

Hollow Valley

Oops - sorry about the Hollow-Valley mixup. I saw "Valley" on the map, but must have gotten "Hollow" stuck in my head on the ride back!

Glad you found it anyway.

Sharon something...

It was a fun ride, had to do some exploring to find it, took me some places I haven't been, and I think that's the reason, or one of them, that I love to get out...

ahhhhhhhh, got it!

Thanks Toad, I rode past it three times, actually stopped once! I had the orientation wrong, was looking at the driveway in background as Delhi Rd. It wasn't adding up until I looked closer at your post.... will get the pic as soon as I can get back out. Columbo I'll never be....lol.

Next up

The Bel Liberty farm house is very nice.


Fire88Dog: How did you get it to look so close to your bike? I either got the wrong house or have a lot to learn about photography.


I kept looking for another dirt road bridge, but ran out of time on my pre-church ride this morning.
Instead, I found this blown-over structure near the northeast corner of Washtenaw County. Didn't see as many Chubby people as I expected.


Full Disclosure: This was actually my second tag of the morning after I realized that my first was well north of the Washtenaw county line! I'll save that for another thread.

Purely by accident...

John, the only thing I can think is the house is what the "camera" focused on, they are iPhone pics. Takes nicer photos than my camera...lol

Had a Toad sighting...I think

Was headed out to get this tag and think I saw Toad on 8mi. in Hamburg, I was still on Sheldon but noticed the unmistakable Moto Lights!! I think.... Toad? Anyway, I totally forgot about Delhihenge, so will post my Chubb Rd. tag as evidence of too late effort... damn leaves sidetracked my riding today! Gotta get to Delhi!

and a follow up, not to muddy the progress of things, but thought i would see if anyone wants to knock out 2 at once. This is Joy E of 23.

A little slippery today!

I got out this morning and slipped around to get both tags:
Barn on Joy:

Just a short hop to Delhi Henge:

Our friends in the SouthEast corner of Washtenaw County haven't gotten much attention, so I found this place. I certainly hope it is named after Mr. Child and not a very sad place:

You're mistaken

Nope - I have a white helmet and a white/grey Klim Latitude suit.

I'm told that I look like an astronaut (albeit with a bit more paunch than Alan Shepard!)

PS - I love your bike!

the day of the dead

Thanks for the bike compliment!

Well I saw a red gs on Willis rd with a hi vis green helmet.

I believe the lesser known dirt road cemetery phase has officially begun! There must.be hundreds of these in washtenaw county, little 3 grave, no-name burial sites. forgotten cemeteries.

Let the tagging begin!
