In the hills near Lucky Peak Reservoir.
Pojana and I set out for the hash at about 6pm, after I got off work. We drove to a parking lot a bit over a mile away from the hash, and set out on foot from there. There were a few promising looking trails at the beginning, but they quickly vanished or turned away from the hash. After about a quarter of a mile of climbing the hill and making our way through the sagebrush, Pojana decided to turn back. I kept going. But at about 1/3 of a mile from the hash, the steepness of the hill increased significantly.
At this point, cold, tired, and a little worried about my wife waiting down by the car, I gave up. Had I been alone, I would have tried to go further. Had the weather been warmer, I would have tried to go further. Had both of those things been true, I might have even found it within myself to make it all the way to the hash. But as it was, the expedition ended in failure.
