Observations and Notes

The Glenn’s Ferry Arrow is located approximately 150 feet south of Old Oregon Trail Rd., east of Mountain Home, Idaho.

The arrow is all broken-up, and in very bad condition.  There was not enough of the arrow left to get a total distance measurement.
However, there was enough visible to get possible compass directions for the approach and exit of the arrow.

The pilot would approach the tail of the arrow on a compass heading of 275° (W), and then exit the arrow on a compass heading of 294° (W-NW).

All measurements and compass headings are approximate.
