Location[edit]

Off of a logging road between Mt. Hood and Hood River.

Participants[edit]

Plans[edit]

We were going to just kinda hang out all day, but then we talked each other into going for a geohashing expedition.

Expedition[edit]

The drive out to the hashpoint was beautiful! Clear skies, nice views of the mountain. We drove east on US-26 and then north OR-35 until a small gravel road turnoff. Just as we were getting there, a log truck pulled out onto the highway. We were glad that we didn't encounter it going up the narrow logging road!

After a while the road started getting narrow and steep, and there was a reasonable turnoff point, so we parked and walked the rest of the way. We happened to park near some beehives! The hashpoint itself was on a steep incline surrounded by a thicket. Luckily we were able to get close enough to be within GPS margin of error before we had to go traipsing through the poison oak.

On our way back a bird spooked us! It hissed at us, probably to scare us away from its nest. The tactic work, as we beat a hasty retreat.

We drove back on I-84 through the gorge which was also quite lovely to look at.
