In the hills south of the Applegate Valley.
On the way south on I-5, we took a side loop down Oregon 238 through the lovely Applegate Valley. Ferris Gulch Road was a one-lane BLM Road, well-maintained but with no traffic whatsoever. It wound steeply uphill about three miles to a point about 120 feet from the hashpoint.
We found a safe place to park, and Michael5000 scrambled up the embankment saying words every wife loves to hear her husband say: "I have no idea how I'll get back down from here...." Once at the hashpoint -- a site marked by two large trees -- we were able to figure out a more sane route for Mrs.5000 to make it upslope, and for us both to get back down safely. Expedition Succeeded!
