Photography 101: A 420 Moment, Sort of


While travelling to Spokane, Washington a few years ago for Thanksgiving, I noticed my Toyota Rav4’s odometer hit an interesting milestone, reaching 111,111 miles. In another mile I would have missed this once-in-a-lifetime moment.

A day or two later, when I showed my husband this photo, he exclaimed about the 42.0 miles, “Oh look, 420! hahaha!” I asked him what is the significance of 420 and he said it had something to do with smoking marijuana.

Now that I have piqued your interest, here is the Huff Post article on 420 Meaning: The True Story of How April 20 Became Weed Day. In short, the pop culture theory is that a Grateful Deadhead was handed a flyer  “We are going to meet at 4:20 on 4/20 for 420-ing in Marin County at the Bolinas Ridge sunset spot on Mt. Tamalpais.” A popular hangout for smoking pot.

Speaking of moments!
