The Lion, the Ed, and the End

As of Thursday morning there were only two more regions on the 2010 March Edness map to go. And they were vastly different - the combined urban and rural region of Parma Park, which includes Sycamore Canyon, and the downtown region.
You probably won't find any homes with bridges as part of their driveways in the downtown area, and if you look very closely at the photo of this interesting lion sculpture, there is a bridge railing in the left side of the shot. That may have helped some identify the location where it was taken: midway up Sycamore Canyon Road, where many residents must cross bridges to get to their homes. Sycamore Canyon was an acceptable answer for this photo.
We suspect that this sculpture may have been created by well known local artist Dan Chrynko, who has made many other colorful mosaics seen around town and on Edhat, including near the Mission, in the creek at Rocky Nook Park, at the County Bowl, and in front of local homes. We tried to reach Dan to find out if this is one of his pieces, but we haven't heard back from him yet. When we do we'll let you know more of the story of the lion on the rock.
Speaking of crossing bridges, we have now crossed over to the very last day of March Edness V. Today there are four photos to guess (the final four), and you already have a big head start on figuring out where they are. Have fun!
