Ruby's Inn is located near the entrance to Bryce Canyon National Park. Reuben "Ruby" Syrett built the first tourist lodge in Bryce Canyon in 1919. He moved it to his ranch and renamed it Ruby's Inn in 1923, the year Bryce Canyon became a National Monument.

DIRECTIONS: Most people reach Ruby's Inn from US Highway 89. From Highway 89 take Scenic Byway 12 east and turn south onto State Highway 63. You will see Ruby's Inn on the right. On the left a small road leads to Bryce View Lodge. Park by Building 1 of the lodge.

CLUES: From the parking lot you should see a dirt horse trail leading to a metal gate through a wooden fence. You will tell it is the correct trail by the sign saying NO ATV'S OR MTN BIKES. Go through this gate.

Follow the horse trail along until you reach a metal culvert for a ditch under the trail. Just before you go across the culvert turn right and walk along a smaller path next to the ditch. About twenty-five paces from the culvert you will come to a fallen log crossing the ditch. Climb over to the opposite side of the log and turn around. You should see a small pile of wood. Pull this wood away and you should see the box under the large log.

The stamp in the letterbox shows Ruby's hat.

Be sure you hide the box again so no one can see it.
