All you architecturalists ought to know this place. It was built for the son of a famous Phoenix resident.
Can you have some more hints? I personally have no idea
Thanks,

It's the house of FLW's son, David, located in Arcadia....

Ahh, now I see it. I guess both FLW and Arcadia, but couldn't find it until just now. But I can't get there today, will someone get it before me?

From the architecturally significant:



To the architecturally, er, odd



So if you're hungering for some Scooter Tag, let's eat!

Ok, I guess Los Olivos *was* a little obscure. Instead, how about one of the few completed works by a FLW student?


Even if you don't know the architect, if you know Scottsdale you should recognize this bridge.

Syd - I couldn't make it to the restaurant so I gave Glen an "Assist" to keep the game going. Work must have got in the way.
I'm getting this one tomorrow morning!

Wait a minute now, Haole. You had a caption under the new tag earlier, but now it's gone. It wasn't any help but it was something.

Needless to say I'm at a loss; could we have a hint?

Sorry Syd, I realized I hadn't blurred out my licence and reposted. (Why we do that I don't even know)

Anyway your hint: Not across from city hall anymore.

SYD, come out 7:30am to Joe's Farm Grill Gilbert this Saturday if you can.. Channel 12 is doing a story on Scooters in the Valley.

7:30AM? On Saturday? I thought that time only occurred on weekdays?

@Haole: Sorry, but I'm still in the dark. Hope someone else picks it up. Glen?

As luck would have it, this afternoon:


I wasn't feeling especially inspired this afternoon, so for the next tag there will be NO hints:

Next Tag...
Found this place today, cool little ghost town I've never seen before. Let me know if you need hits (I took 2 photos to help). Man, it was like 105 today, HOT.

105? Pah! It's going to be 115 today! Thankfully, the better half had to be out of the house by 7, so I was up and going long before it reached that.
Mummy Mountain Western Town is a nice place, in the touristy, tacky way these places tend to be.


The next tag should need no clue other than what is seen below.

It's been a month, so...

It's the the light-rail stop art installation at S Dorsey Ln and Apache Blvd in Tempe. If nobody picks it up shortly I guess I'll post a replacement that will get things going again.

It's about that far west of an earlier tag, and a bit north of an earlier one as well.

There is a huge hint in my preceding post.

Well, I'm too dense to have picked up on the hint, but I guessed right when I first saw it. So, the main entrance to the DBG:


And while I was running around this morning I got hungry, so I stopped by my favorite diner:


One of these days, I'll go by there when it's open.

I wish I would have pulled my scooter out of the shadows. It was so bright I couldn't see my phone's screen at all after I took the shot.

I got a couple better ones but they only have half the wall.
