After obtaining specific directions for the owl this
afternoon, I cruised out on the Palouse Highway and
saw the bird.

Here are the directions:

>From the South Hill junction of 57th Ave/Palouse Hwy.

drive approxiamtely three miles south. Once you cross
the hilltop intersection of Willow Springs Rd./Palouse
Hwy. continue down to the base of the hill to Hoffman
Lane on the left hand side. This road has many John
Scott Realty signs along it. The bird was patrolling
the next valley on the right side (east) about a
quarter of mile up Hoffman Lane .

WARNING: Hoffman Lane is posted "Private Road - No
Trespassing". It would be best to obtain permission
to enter this subdivision. Otherwise the views will
probably be quite distant.
