Just off the railroad on the eastern edge of Cascade Locks.
I have a hike planed on the Oregon side today, but the Hash looks to be right in Cascade Locks. I think that I'll go on the way.
A quick jump into the bushes by the tracks. It wasn't really the empty looking spot that was on the DOQQ. But it was only 20 ft in. I went at about 10 AM & left the marker, but I left the camera in the car. So I stopped on the way back through after a lovely hike up Eagle Creek to Loowit Falls.
It had been literally dozens of hours since I had gone geohashing, and this hashpoint appealed to me for a couple of reasons. For one thing, I think it's funny that it took me almost two years to get to The Dalles, Oregon, and now to hit it three times in nine days. Also, Mrs.5000 had a class for the evening, so why not take a short drive after work, catch a hashpoint, and take another step towards my barmy goal of exercising in all 36 Oregon counties?
Well. I drove out, parked, walked out the railbed and then into the brush, completely failed to notice Kydlt's markers from eight hours earlier -- in retrospect, I should have thought to look for them -- and then ran to the Bridge of the Gods and back, 5.41 miles if you happened to be curious. Not nearly such a nice hike as my colleague got, but Expedition success!! ...and I have now run in Hood River County.
A shot in the dark at leaving a tracklog as a csv-txt file didn't work. What form should the link here take ?
- First Expedition to Hood River County.
- September 2011 now has my most Expeditions (16) and my most successful Expeditions (12) of any month.
