Plans[edit]

This graticule defeated me once before. So I've been wanting to give it another try. Today's coordinates looked likely to be reachable.

Expedition[edit]

The trip to the hash was relatively uneventful. I was able to drive to within 0.25 miles of the coordinates, though the road for the last few miles wasn't great. The weather at the hash was a bit chilly, but above freezing at least.

Had a nice walk the remainder of the way to the hash. Made a marker from sticks, took some pictures, and spent some time looking up at the beautiful night sky. I really like the desert at night. The relative lack of light pollution and dry air combine to make the night sky a much more spectacular view than it is from home. I tried to get some pictures of the stars, but my camera (or perhaps my skill at using my camera) proved to not be up to the task. Saw a lot of jackrabbits and kangaroo mice, but none of them stayed still long enough for a picture.


  • Success! Made it to the hash, but no mobile service there, so posting from about a mile away. Full writeup when I get home. -- Eldin (talk) @43.0194,-115.0470 20:56, 8 March 2013 (MST)
