Scott, it was great to tour with your Photography group. People are surprised there is so much to photograph in Downtown. I enjoyed pointing out the small details and taking you all into the secret tunnel and old bank vault.

Only on Tues & Thur mornings. Most stops are inside businesses that are not open on weekend. Fast pace & distance traveled might be too much for some.
