I, Mike, went to check out today's geohash. According to Google Maps, the hash is on the shoulder of the northbound 710 freeway just before the Rosecrans offramp in Compton.
I got there about 4:20 and approached the hash by walking down the adjacent LA River Bike Path from Rosecrans Blvd. Unlike much of the LA River, I was surprised to find the bike path in good shape, and the graffiti was largely abated. Kudos to the City of Paramount. As I walked along the river I saw ducks and other birds playing the in water. To get to the actual location, I ran down the berm that separates the river from the freeway and snapped a picture between the freeway iceplant and the pepper trees.
I was going to wait around to see if anyone else would show, even though I was fairly positive no one would, but, it was too bright for me to play my Nintendo DS. So I snapped some photos and was back at the car by 4:45.
