On a hill overlooking the John Day Valley west of Mount Vernon.

[edit] Expedition

This easy-looking hashpoint turned out to be a disappointment. On the map it is a very short drive off of U.S. Highway 26, but the road in question is private -- someone's driveway, really. I tried the direct approach of hiking straight up the slope, but it quickly became too steep to continue. This was actually a bit of a relief, since behaving strangely right next to a major road always makes me feel a little awkward. Call me crazy.

Having only one success against two failures for the day, I continued west on U.S. 26 feeling a bit defeated. The day's final three hashpoints, however, would all be successes.
