Three Corners

May 24, 2017

Today, we tried to find the intersection of California, Oregon and Nevada.

We went south on 395 from Lakeview, dropped by the Goose Lake Oregon State campground to take a look, then went south and missed the turning to Fort Bidwell. Back-tracking, we got on it.

After a few serene miles the road turned gravel, and kicking up some dust, we found the ‘Fandango Pass’, which led us to a precipitous, switchbacky, way down to the dry lake on the Eastern side of the Warner Mountain range.

Heading north from there to Fort Bidwell, we wondered how anyone around here buys their groceries, it’s so far from anywhere.

Heading North East, after miles and miles of gravel roads (Modoc County Roads 5 and 1), we hit the border of CA and OR:

CAORNV

At this point, we tried putting in the location of the 3 state junction of CA, OR and NV to the GPS. Yep, it said, you can go down this farm track to get to the ‘3 corners’ point on someone’s private land about a mile east from where we were,

Good judgement prevailed.

So, then we headed north on the gravel road, to hit asphalt about 10 miles later to the small town of Adel, then west on OR 140, following Deep Creek for some miles to encounter the Deep Creek Falls

Special Day 🙂
