Exclamation Please Help - Starter Solenoid

I have a 2001 Ranger (4.0 SOHC), which is currently stuck in a train station 45 minutes from my house with a burnt out starter solenoid. I know that I can jump the solenoid by making a connection between two bolt ends - but I can't figure out where it even is. My positive battery cable splits off in four different spots, and they all seem to lead to a no-man's-land beneath my hood. If anybody could give me a more specific location (maybe some pictures?) it would be a lifesaver. I really can't afford to have it towed out, and I'm getting more and more anxious about leaving it there.

It will be a cylinder with terminals sticking out of it on top of your starter.
