In the Deschutes National Forest west of Three Rivers, Oregon.
This hashpoint was closer to our location than yesterday's, but it looked like a longer walk. We decided to go for the Pie achievement!
After sleeping in and having a big breakfast, we put on our warm clothes and left. We almost forgot the pie, so we turned back to retrieve it.
We parked off of National Forest road #40 and tried to take as straight a path as possible to the hashpoint. Large, dead trees caused us to zig-zag a bit, so we ended up bearing too far towards due west at the start. Our journey was also slowed by the mud. The mud was rigid and filled with mostly air, causing our feet to sink fairly far into the mud with a satisfying crunch.
At the hashpoint, we took picture including some goofy grins and some not-so-goofy grins. Some of us had some pumpkin pie, and Daisy found a lot of interesting sticks.
On the walk back, we took a side road that was unmarked on Google Maps back to NF-40 instead of beelining through the forest. We saw a guy in a truck with his dog! He passed us three times - he had to go back to pick up his bicycle, which had fallen off of the truck. By the time we got back to the van our shoes were very muddy.
