South Fork Bull Canyon Road ? Hard to believe there is dry land farming this far west of Malad.

Too far south and east. At least Malad is. Not sure where South Fork Bull Canyon Road's at? Either way, incorrect.

Wow! I figured one of you Idaho riders would get this one fairly easily.
The route (from previous clues) that his road is on is the T2. Knowing this is on the T2, with all the other clues, should get the game moving again.

How about Knox Canyon Road. (north end of South Bull Canyon Run)

The farmland is the problem. Where can dry land farming exist in the desert? This is a long way from where I live and I have only done pavement.

Where there is enough elevation and corresponding precipitation to eek out a grain crop. There's actually quite a bit of dry land grain cropping in SE Idaho.

Getting closer! Knox Canyon Rd is one of the roads in the clue photo with the obscured road signs. About 15 minutes from the original photo. And as I recall, most of the open ground we passed in that area had some kind of dry land grain crop.

Sure, come in and scoop me, after I did all the work.

If it is correct, take us somewhere new. Priest Lake, Columbia Basin, Potholes, etc. I gotta go rake leaves.

You're both with in miles but still not the road the photo was taken from.

No to all your guesses. The road name is given in Martin's written directions for the T2 from state line to state line and the structure is very visible from the dreaded Google Earth.

If I get one you can post a picture

I just ride around on the mower and chop the leaves into mulch in the lawn. Very little effort expended.
