In (or on a bank of) Buffalo Creek in the northwest outskirts of Anamosa, Iowa, south of Buffalo Road.



The geohash appeared to be under some trees on the outer edges of Anamosa. I drove up from Iowa City, through Anamosa, and parked near what appeared to be a construction site. However, nobody was around. (After getting out of my car, I didn't see a single person other than the inhabitants of cars driving on the road.) I walked down to Buffalo Road and headed east towards the geohash location.

I soon discovered that while the hash was on public, theoretically accessible property, venturing south from the road to the hash would involve trudging through grass significantly taller and thicker than I was dressed for, while being attacked by swarms of gnats.

The longitude of the hash turned out to be on the bridge over Buffalo Creek, and as actually getting to the hash would have probably involved wading into the river, I decided to just take a picture from the bridge and not venture further today.
