A dirt road near Decker Coal Mine in Montana.
tankgunk and his sister.
The location is an hour away from tankgunk's house, and smack dab on a road, so tankgunk took his sister out for some driving hours on her permit.
Twas a blast, we took a dirt road up for fun, and took the real highway back home (it was getting late). Might have been more pretty hills and stuff to look at during the day, though.
The quality of these photos is really really bad, a combination of late night geohashing and phone cameras. I promise, next time we'll go during the day with a real camera. Also, I didn't get any pictures of the actual ground at the location; all the dirt road looked the same as the first picture I took, so I didn't worry about it.
My favorite is the serious business entrance to the coal mine. The fence around the entire mine, where they bother to have one, is barbed wire. And it's huge, it's almost-but-not-really like trying to secure the Mexico border. Anyway, they operate 24/7, someone was probably watching me from the security booth and wondering what I was up to...
