In the Snake River Canyon just south of Hagerman.
After three expeditions in a row where places shown by Google Maps as accessible by rural roads turned out to be very difficult or nearly impossible to get to, this one came as a bit of a surprise: I drove up a short rural road, parked, and walked a few meters out into a field. Mission accomplished!
The spot was in the lush Snake River Canyon, and when I arrived at the end of a long day of driving the farms and canyon walls were lit with beautiful golden light from the setting sun. To get across the river from the more densely populated north side I had to drive across a decrepit old bridge, restricted to one lane of non-truck traffic and seemingly unpaved for decades; even it looked enchanting in the evening light. Of all the hashpoints I've been too, this place was probably the most bucolic -- not necessarily the most beautiful, but the sweetest.
