In the Boise foothills.
The hash today was less than 5 miles from my office. So when I found myself with a few hours to kill in the afternoon while waiting for everyone else to leave so I could bring down some systems for maintenance, I decided to go for it. There was a trail on the map which looked to go relatively close to the hash, so I headed for the trailhead. As soon as I reached the trailhead I saw signs stating that leaving marked trails was not allowed, so I set out walking without much hope of reaching the hash.
But I wanted to get as close as possible anyway. It was a beautiful spring day outside, so it was an enjoyable walk along a trail in the hills. I passed many pedestrians, bicyclists and dogs on the path, but none of them appeared to be geohashing. After walking about half a mile, I arrived at the nearest approach of the trail to the hash (about 750 ft). I took some pictures of the area around the hash, and some pictures of Boise spread out in the valley below. I also took a picture of my not-quite-a-grin. Then I kept walking up the trail, away from the hash for a while.
While on the trail (but not no near the hash), I got a picture of one of the many signs in the area asking that people stay on marked trails. Although it was disappointing not reaching the hash (3rd 'No Public Access' hash in 3 days), I did have a good time.
