The World Travel series stamps are a joint effort by Wisconsin Hiker and Martini Man and were originally used at the Fall Folk Festival event in Wisconsin on 17-OCT-15. They are now replanted in Arizona as three separate groups of boxes. Please note that there is a “Passport Code” on the first page of each logbook. Collect the info from inside each logbook and then put the codes together, separated by dashes, to form an URL to get clues for an extra box.

Example: PC3- PC4- PC5- PC6- PC7- PC8-PC9.html

(Substitute the actual Passport Code found in each of the 9 boxes box for “PCx” in the URL above.)

Last found/checked: 24-MAR-16

Location: oniloM nisaB, atolleB Trail (there is a fee to park in the lot between milepost 5 and 6 on the Catalina Highway. )

Hike Distance: Approximately 2.25 miles roundtrip, 500 ft elevation gain

Terrain: Sandy & rocky trail.

Note: Bring lots of water along on your hike because it can get hot on the open trails. Although we never saw any, you should be alert for snakes and scorpions. Also be careful of the cactus – we can verify that they do tend to “attack” the unwary!

Your destination in Africa is Kenya , a country in East Africa with coastline on the Indian Ocean. It encompasses savannah, lakelands, the dramatic Great Rift Valley, mountain highlands and abundant wildlife such as lions, elephants and rhinos. Your trail begins adjacent to the parking lot, crosses the road and parallels the creek for a short distance then crosses the creek and begins the ascent up the saddle to the east. Wind up the trail to the gate and steps (.9 miles). Before crossing, take a bearing of 340° and walk 40 steps to a cluster of 3 rocks. It is a rough, faint trail in to the rocks, so be careful of shin daggers! One of the rocks is long and flat sided. #1: World Travel – KENYA is nestled here under some smaller rocks. (Suggested color: Yellow/Gold)

Now you will travel to South America to visit Peru. It is on the west coast of South America and borders the South Pacific. It is home to a section of Amazon rainforest and Machu Picchu, an ancient Incan city set high in the Andes Mountains. Go through the gate to enter atolleB Ranch. Continue another ¼ mile from the gate. The trail will start descending with the Rincon mountains in the distance and Aqua Caliente summit in view. Stop when you see a rock ledge on the left with a beautiful view of the area. Walk 9 steps towards the ledge on the small trail that is just to the right of a tree and a burned stump. #2: World Travel – PERU is nestled under the front of a pink/red tilted rock on the left side of the trail. (Suggested color: Brown)

After admiring the view and carefully rehiding the box, retrace your steps back to your vehicle.
