Ann Arbor Art Fair 2017

My wife Julie and I attended the Ann Arbor Art Fair in 2017.  We stayed within easy walking distance of downtown Ann Arbor at the Burnt Toast Inn bed and breakfast on West Williams Street.  The overall Art Fair combines 4 different arts organizations into one great showing of great artists and artisans throughout downtown Ann arbor over a 4 day period.  See the pictures below for a flavor of the fair.

Kinsey Road Mound Preserve – Xenia, Ohio

I visited this small, quiet, and unique Adena Mound when I was attending the Amateur Radio Hamvention in 2017.  It is just about a 1/2 mile east of Xenia High School.  Take Highlander Drive south off of Kinsey Road.  These pictures were taken from the Mound Ct. Cul-de-sac just off of Highlander Drive.  You can park on the Cul-de-sac, but not directly in front of the mound entryway according to the road parking signs.   I was able to walk around the mound and see some of the encircling embankment which I believe may qualify this site to be called a Henge or Hengiform monument.  There are some trails that lead down to the Oldtown Creek and loop through the small preserve.  Lat/Long Coordinates are (39.710474,-83.912942).   Click on the images to see a larger view.
