    Not sure what you mean by "location"? It looks a lot like a trailhead on the southwest side of Cuddy Mountain.

    How about a road or street name? Not Cuddy.

    Looks like it could be Boise Ridge Road where Dry Creek Trail comes in.

    Close. Here's another give-away clue taken from the same spot.

    8th street, although I don't know if that is what it is still called up that high. The map calls it Mile High Road up there.

    We call it 8th street. Go Handy.

    Edit: North of Boise, Idaho

    I think you are on the right track, but not Browns Creek.

    There was a picture taken within about three miles of here in this thread sometime in the last two or three months. I think I got it and it may have been my first right answer in this thread.

    Nope, Browns Creek was much closer.

    I think I'm out of easy ones, so I may have to give some hints for this one. I'd be really surprised if anyone gets this right out of the box.

    This cabin sits at roughly 3400' and is accessible from a few different directions, all by single track. Name the "meadow" it calls home.

    Looks like the cabin along/near the Weitas Creek trail, SE of Weitas Station. Don't know the name of the meadow. My Benchmark map does not list any meadow names for that area. Been several years since I have ridden that area.

    If it is the Weitas Creek I just found on Google Earth, it is a fair distance directly north from there.

    I may end up bailing on this one and trying to find another location. I'm not sure how many maps even list this area, and I am pretty sure more people visit here on horseback than on wheels. I'll give it another day or so...

    Sorry for the wait... Our internet connection is less than stellar and finally decided to return.

    Here is the answer to where that cabin is:

    With some interesting history:

    So let's get this thing rolling again. Here is a group of lakes that all go by one name, easily accessed by gravel road (I took the pics from 2-track that overlooks them):

    My wife and I rode to this spot and camped a few years ago.
