We'll catch this on the road from Superior to Minneapolis, hopefully before sunset.

[edit] Expedition

We visited this hash on the way from Superior (WI) to Minneapolis (MN), on the way from one Christmas celebration to another. The morning was gray, but the sky cleared up nicely while we had lunch, so it was a pretty day at the hashpoint.

We arrived about 2:45 p.m. and spent a long time doing the GPS dance. The goal was on the north shoulder of Elbow Lake Road, less than 5 feet from the road. My dad complained: had he known it was so close, he wouldn't have changed into his boots.

The dregs of my wife's tea froze almost as soon as they were outside the van. It was pretty cold: -8 C°, nearly the high temperature for the day, but still easily a Frozen Geohash. The dog had fun sniffing around for the birds that must have been nearby; the rest of my family was cheerful but cold. With Elbow Lake visible from the hashpoint, this was certainly my most photogenic location to date.
