The North Main Puzzle
that parking lot. The cars behind us in this forty-five-mph zone were doing at least fifty, ramping up for their merge with M-14. On our first pass, we missed it.
"I saw a sign, but it didn't say Bluffs."
"All I saw was Hawkins Auto Body shop."
Turning around and heading south, we missed it again. This time we saw a weathered wood sign that said "Bluffs Park" on the south side of the body shop. Problem was, there was no driveway next to it.
On our third pass, we slowed down--infuriating the driver behind us since this is the fast lane--took a chance, and turned in a rutted dirt driveway just north of Hawkins. We pulled up to a split-rail fence just before the driveway made a quick right into a private home. No signs confirmed we were at Bluffs Park, but the fence seemed like something the city might put in a park--and there was a trail heading up the ridge.
