Theme of the Day: An Exploratory Mission
It was a great day for a ride today! Sadly there is no map for my 8 and a half mile ride, for Google Maps, My Tracks and I are not getting along. Happily, I was able to get Google Maps to let me make a map showing where I went on my exploratory mission.
This is another route I could have taken home on my Easter ride. I had come out on the corner of Avocet and Main St on Easter. Now I know that I could have gone down Main to Crane. You can see on the map, and even better on satellite view, that it is not a huge jump from the end of Drake St to Crane St. I had to find out if I could make it through or not.
I came at it from the opposite direction today. When I got to the right point I found a trail head type of crossing that was chained shut with downed trees pulled to block the sides. (I wish I had taken a picture!) It was very strange. I was able to maneuver Ursula through, but it was obvious that someone did not want that happening. You actually come out on what looks like a parking lot, but it is labeled a street.

You can also see on the map how Main St NW seems to end. If you look at a larger version on the map you will see that it starts again several blocks down. The road construction is so intense that Google Maps removed it from the map!
