Update for Sunday, September 24, 2023

I took a day trip up into the thumb area today (Sept 10, 2023) and took a few dozen new photos. Some were fresh pics of existing locations, others were new. I solved some of the mystery surrounding the Forestville Shopping Plaza so I was pleased about that. Thanks for stopping by!
