If no one objects, I can accept it. It will keep the game moving. The actual spot is a parking lot for a picnic area and isn't really
visible from the road. One would either have to know it was there or extrapolate the location from the angle of the picture.

Aw man- I passed it like, 6 times looking for it. I saw the lot but never went in!

ROFL! I wasn't thinking Tatooine when I saw it- However, I did revere in its ominousness (if that's a word). I know it's only been a week and most tags are found on the weekends. I do have a hint prepped though. Good luck everyone!

Can anyone get in on this?
Even read the OP with the rules. Then skipped to the last page.
Is this close enough?

Nice find! I had a suspicion as to where it was and verified it on Google Maps. (Hope that's not cheating!) Never made it out there, though.
Stevens Canyon Road, near Montebello (which is a very nice road!). Dead end, but the Ridge winery is up there and helps make it worth the trip. Views are nice, too.

Remember seeing it from 280...
In the hills where Stevens Creek Blvd turns into Permanente Road. Sorta new to the area. So, happy I could get one. Next...

My husband pointed me in the direction of that one. Rancho San Antonio's model airplane field.
Here's another spot...
