On the shoulder of Berthold Road, five or six miles south of the Columbia and just south of the big waste facility in Gilliam County.
(This is the location (45.60977,-120.20472) according to Geohashing.info, the Geohash Droid, and the Small Hash Inquiry Tool. A different location is currently shown on the map on this page, which, whatever.)
After stopping for the hashpoint at 2019-06-05 45 -121, I continued my drive eastward though the Columbia Gorge as far as the little town of Arlington, and then drove southward up from the river. The hashpoint is near the railyard where all of the garbage from Portland, where I live, is brought to be hauled up into a huge landfill up on the ridge. I thought it might be kind of stinky, but it was nice and quiet, a very rural scene. I wandered around for a while and took some pictures. Then, I figured it was about time to be starting for home!
This expedition involved a lot of driving, and not a lot of much else.
A lovely valley graced by a garbage train.
The bear enjoyed the chance to go for a long drive.
I finally claimed Gilliam County, the 29th of Oregon's 36 counties.
And, this was my first success in the Goldendale graticule.
