Where in Austin?

8 MileIt’s time once again when you, the studio audience, get to join in the fun of blogging without the extreme physical danger or financial risk usually associated with the sport. The game is simple: I show you a picture of an Austin location, you guess where it is. Or not. Either way, I take up space on the Austin Metblogs front page for a week or so and everyone’s happy. Or not.

We’ll start off with minimal description, and I’ll provide leads periodically until someone gets it or a tryptophan O.D. shuts down the give-a-shit receptors in my brain. This location is within the city limits, and has nothing whatsoever to do with Eminem. But in that spirit, I will say that you’ve got to lose yourself if you’re going to find this spot.

The game is afoot!

    You’d probably be interested in joining the Austin Scavenger Hunt group on Flickr.

    Town Lake Trail – I’ll say…somewhere between IH-35 and Longhorn Dam.

    Good guess, but these trail markers (and other signs) are tucked away off of the Town Lake trail.

    Ok, then…how about the City of Austin maintenance yard?

    That’s more or less correct. The old Town Lake mile markers were removed from the trail and stashed away with other park items (note the Yulefest log in the background).

    So what is my prize?
