    Her Strava track would've given some quality clues, as well, although it wasn't necessary to solve the puzzle.

    PS: This thread just passed 4,000 posts: I wonder how many calories it has burned?

    I wonder how many beers have been consumed because of this thread?

    For me alone, in the ballpark 0f 60-100. (recent tag at Tiger! Tiger! included)

    If you come here for the tag on Saturday, there will be about 800 people doing yoga everywhere. If you see me, come say hi!

    Last tag was Rosa Parks Elementary in City Heights.

    Hint?

    I am not providing any hints beyond what's already in Ted's description but Google this:

    "yoga san diego saturday june 17"

    I don't even know if this is it, but that's what I would try first - obviously, one needs to ride out there to know for sure.

    This takes 0.2 seconds, so you don't have to spend all day behind a computer screen.

    Tag (I believe), different tree, same park (park/lawn at the South / West corner of the intersection Presidents Way & Park Blvd, with Coronado bridge views in the background on the left and downtown on the right):



    My phone is taking really shitty night pictures, so here another shot - same intersection, but the North / East corner to show at least the street signs for "proof" that I have been there:




    I'll let t.e.d confirm if the tag is valid before posting a new tag.

    And the new tag:



    Last tag was the "Balboa Park Boulevard and Presidents Way Lawn", rather prosaic but that's the official name according to google maps ;-)

    Next one up:



    Last one was at the Trader Joe's shopping center in HIllcrest. The shot was taken on what's commonly known as "PFA's Rat Run", so I figured I had a chance to capture this one today as he is out of town.

    Now that I have had a chance to look at the tag I claimed on a larger screen, I am thinking maybe that I caught the wrong entrance to the parking structure - I will leave it to Ted to decide if it qualifies as a catch or not.

    I've been trying to be mindful of placing tags at savvy locations for getting around town. Since the parking garage/bike freeway is a GREAT asset for getting from Hillcrest to Uni Heights, I'm all for putting up as many different pictures as possible. So, yes. Your catch is awesome, as is the new tag, which I just rode by this morning. :/

    I'm tempted to go get the catch now and start a Gloria Muriel series. She's got a lot of great walls in my hood.

    This Gloria Muriel mural used to be on the very same wall, but was replaced by the current one sometime over the last year or so, purportedly when a new business tenant moved in.

    I am glad I caught it before it was gone; it was spectacular:

    I would like to know the story behind how Muriel ended up being commissioned to paint two murals on this wall; one on top of the other.

    It looks to me like a collaboration, and a great one at that!

    Yes, the yellow (current one) is a collab - you can clearly see different styles on the two sides of the work.

    The building postal number was the clue I needed.

    Next one should be up before mid-day (not quite up to
    Hans' expectations and practice, but not too bad nevertheless).

    Behind these walls lay a place of great historical interest and significance.

    More about that later.
