This HS proved to be a bit of a trick to find... at least for me it was. Luckily I was armed with my new best friend... my trusty GPS. In all actuality, if I would have followed my directions correctly I would have ended up on a washed-out road anyway. As luck would have it, my GPS coordinates were off. However, a bit of hiking around eventually brought me to a crest above the Bruneau River where I was able to spot the HS on the other side.... *sigh* Unfortunately, by the time we found this one the sun was beating down and the daytime temps influenced us to only soak our legs. I look forward to revisiting this HS in the future.
