I returned from Casa Don Gallo (the best Chimichangas in town, mind you!) and assembled the team together for yet another Saturday geohashing adventure. I would have preferred leaving around three to get to the hash by four, but who was I joking; that would never happen with my roomies! So we left at three, forty-five, and...
The drive to the hash was very simple. Not far from our apartment is Alcoa Highway, which is also known as Highway 411, something I did not know. Our hash point was near 411, so it was a very simple, yet long drive. The journey over was amazing. The clouds were layered with the heavy, dark clouds dispersing quickly while the higher, whiter ones prevented the Sun's rays from reaching the ground. Add the rolling foothills in the distance, and you have just imagined one of my most zen-filled thoughts. It was gorgeous.
Chris fell asleep a little ways into the drive, and Alex and I looked around for interesting tidbits here and there. Eventually, we landed at our destination and parked on the shoulder. After snagging some pictures (and a video for the first time) we explored the area. It was very muddy and cold, but my instinct to explore ignored the troubles, and I kept on sniffing around. I found a baby's leg! You're welcome, America. Which reminds me: we got the Geotrash Geohash achievement finally!
Once we rapped up the hash point and returned back to the apartment, we all went to Zaxby's. I didn't get anything this time, for I had Casa (the best Chimichangas in town, you have to remember that!).
Now you look at the pictures and see what I saw!
Happy Birthday, Darwin!
