Expedition[edit]

So, continuing from 2019-03-23 43 -120, I drove south on US 385, only the second time I've traveled that road. It periodically rained and then snowed, so I wasn't able to focus on the scenery, but the scenery and the drive were both pretty dramatic. The weather had stabilized when I got to the intersection with US 140, which climbs rapidly up into snowy ridges but was cleared and easy to drive on. The hashpoint is on a gravel turnoff if you look on Google Maps, but as I found it it was a big field of perfect white snow. I've never lived anyplace that it snows much, so I've only waded out into a snow field a few times in my life. It was fun!

Then I got back in the car and headed down the hill to the town of Lakeview, namesake of the graticule that I had just geohashed -- the first person ever to do such a thing! I was not met with a parade, but they sold me some food and gasoline. I started the long drive back to Prineville, using the very pretty Paisley highway this time; the rain and snow was very heavy at first but I soon got west of the weather and before sundown even saw a hint of blue sky.
