Morning Outlook

This is the view you take in from the old Shailer School site. The North Street school was dedicated on October 14, 1882 and named for the Rev. William Shailer, a minister and an education leader at the time in the city. This is truly one of those places in the city where you can, on a clear day, 'almost see forever'. That is if you can get over the graffiti in the foreground. Just beyond this weathered fence the land pretty much goes almost straight down. Have your wits about you, as they say, if you are venturing along the edge. I must say it is quite a striking view, looking off to the West.

  2. Regardless of what some others say, I think that graffiti is a blight on any landscape. Let them get their own canvas!

  3. I enlarged the picture and that is a great view! I guess you can't escape graffiti anywhere.
