If you are trying to find latitude and longitude of a point on a map there are a few good downloads you can get for free or there are websites like this one Get Lat Lon - find the latitude and longitude of a point on a map that give you latitude and longitude from a cross hair on a map.

If you have more Idaho locations please post them up here so we can all enjoy the Idaho Crawling Spots.
