In the mountains south of Philomath, Oregon.
It's Frogman's birthday, time for a geohashing trip!
After leaving county-maintained roads, our mountain ascent was filled with gravel and bumps. Luckily Greg's truck is fairly hardy, although his shock absorbers were a little squeaky. We saw a number of motorbike riders, as well as signs forbidding motorbike riding.
Along the way, we were met with gorgeous views of the valley and vast forests. The hashpoint itself was about 150 meters off of a small dirt road unknown to even the all-knowing Google Maps. We hiked down a relatively steep hill and through short brush to get to the point. There was a mossy tree!
After we got back, I had a birthday party. We ate sushi!
