A mile off Highway 52 between Harmony, MN and Preston, MN.
The hashpoint happened to fall halfway between a funeral and a baptism on the same day, not far from the main highway, and barely off a country road. So it was worth a shot even if it was unlikely to be successful, given that Mark was wearing a suit. Luckily, his dress shoes were in need of replacing, so a silly expedition was not out of the question.
After a bit of searching, his GPS neared zero. Finding a nice place to park, Mark put on the snowshoes, waved to a an occasional passing Amish buggy or ATV driver, and set off a dozen or so meters into a cleared, snow-covered, corn field. A very easy geohash.
While searching for the coordinates, Mark noticed some nice Sun dogs, and had to take pictures.
