[edit] Expedition

The Mount St. Helens graticule is a tough one to crack, so when I saw that there was a hashpoint close to a freeway exit this weekend I decided to pounce on it. It was a bit of a drive, but then I like bits of drives. There has been rare low-altitude snow in the region this weekend, which made the drive more pretty than usual.

From the freeway, McClure road took me up a hill to a gate to a logging road that immediately forked in two. I chose the left road -- correctly, I think -- and a slight, gradual rise in elevation soon took me into ankle-deep snow. The forest has thickened considerably since the aerial images available online, so the final four hundred feet required ducking and weaving through a maze of animal trails through branches and undergrowth thick with melting snow. But, I made it to the hashpoint.

By the time I got back to the logging road, I was completely soaked. Back at the truck, I turned on the heater and the fan and was more or less dry within a half hour.
