(Idaho's first letterbox)

An 81-mile stretch of the Snake River Canyon is designated as the Snake River Birds of Prey National Conservation Area. Nearly constant updrafts allow raptors, such as hawks and eagles, to hunt the desert floor and proliferate like nowhere else on earth. To reach this area, take I-84 to Exit 44 at Meridian and proceed south on Idaho Highway 69 through Kuna to Dedication Point, where visitors can enjoy a spectacular view into the canyon and observe the birds soaring on the air currents above it.

From the Prairie Falcon, go 69 paces at 28 degrees (magnetic) to a crossing. Walk 39 paces at 285 degrees and 8 paces at 335 degrees to a fenceside animal lare. The entrance to the hiding place is 3 paces away at 250 degrees.
