[edit] Location

Several hundred feet off the Orchard access road, between Boise and Mountain Home. This may prove to be private property.

[edit] Plans

I'm going to try to hit this one after work. It will probably be past 6:30 before I arrive in the vicinity.

[edit] Expedition

After work I drove out towards the hash point. As I approached the hash point, there was a fence along the road on the side of the hash point. However, there weren't any signs or markers indicating that trespassing wasn't allowed. I found a spot along the road to park my car and set out walking along the fence, looking for a good spot to cross. After walking a few hundred feet I saw an orange marker ahead beside the fence. I was worried it would be a No Trespassing sign. However, on closer inspection, it turned out to be a sign warning not to dig due to buried telecommunications cable. And as luck would have it, there was a spot with room to climb under the fence beside the marker. From there, it was about 1/4 mile easy walk to the coordinates. I reached the spot, took some pictures, and headed back to my car.
