This is a picture of the water tower that I took Monday afternoon. Last night (Tuesday), when I drove by, I saw the GM logo had been painted over--there was just a blue square in the middle of the white tank. Unfortunately, Monday's picture isn't what I had hoped it would be (the angle from the parking lot wasn't great and I wanted to go back and try again), but at least I do have this shot.

GM Proving Grounds
General Motors closed their desert proving ground in Mesa (north of Queen Creek, along Ellsworth) this summer and moved it to Yuma. I don't have dates, but I heard that when the facility opened they tested the prototype for the Corvette here. For the last few years, only a small division of workers remained at the facility, presumably closing things down and preparing for the move.
