Off the shoulder of Ferry Canyon Road, just where it splits off from Highway 206, west of Condon.
- Michael5000: Expedition #220
After 2019-08-02 45 -122, I put some distance between myself and the taint of defeat, crossing the Cascades on backroads and then making my way south to Madras, where I found a nice canyon trail to run on and thus claimed my 35th (of 36) Oregon counties run in. So that was good.
After that, I pondered what I wanted to do for the rest of the day, and figured the answer was "continue driving through very attractive scenery." So, having stopped for coffee, I made my way northeast across Wheeler County and then north to the charming little town of Condon, and from there five or six miles west to this hashpoint.
The point was basically at the entrance to these folks' driveway, so to avoid troubling them I didn't do the precision thing and get out of the car and take a dozen selfies with the hashscot and all that. Instead, I pulled over from the intersection and "consulted the map." Then, I took a few quick pictures, and made to go -- but before I got into gear, someone passing on the highway slowed to a stop to make sure I hadn't out of gas. "Nope," I said. "I'm doing great."
