Fourth of Five on a Sunny Sunday:
I had some trouble reaching this one as the map in my GPSr didn't know that Lemond was closed by the conversion of this segment of US-14 to freeway status. I had to back-track to I-35 and exit on westbound US-14 and then take the first exit to Lemond Road, where I was again fooled by an unusual design on a roundabout and took the leg that directed me north rather than south. I made a U-turn at the first intersection and got to the DP, which was in a (guess what) snow covered field on a hill above the road. Lemond Road curved to the southwest and the nearest farmstead was about 200m south of the DP. I turned about in the drive to that farm and headed after my final goal, a VX about 24km to the east.
My total trip to score 3 DP and 2 VX covered 370 km in 4.9 hours.
