Stamp hand-carved
Version 3.0: this is the third carving and location for this box!

The box is in the small Iron Horse Park in central Tucson. From I-10 take exit 258 and go east on Congress Street. Congress will become Broadway Blvd. when you get to downtown. Continue east on Broadway Blvd. After passing under Diamondback Bridge, turn left (north) on Euclid Avenue for one block. Turn left (west) on 10th St. and park along 10th St. just before the 3rd Ave. intersection.

Walk a short distance south on the curving concrete path to the asphalt paved bike path that runs along the terracotta color wall. Turn left (east) and follow the path as it curves generally east past the playground to the mouth of the Diamondback Footbridge. Turn right and walk south over the bridge. Immediately after exiting the bridge, go to the right corner of the exit. From that point, go at about 300 degrees (from mag. north) for about 14 steps to two Century Plants (Agave) against a low terracotta color wall. The box is between the smaller plant and the wall under a dark flat rock. You are looking for a round microbox. This is a very public and highly visible area, so please be very very discreet when retrieving and re-hiding the box.

Please be sure the log book is in the ziploc when you put it back in the box (the stamp is not in a ziploc). Please push and turn the cap on tightly. Please rehide the box well under the rock so that it can not be seen from any direction and replace the rock so that it looks natural to the setting!.

Please do the park a favor -- if there is trash near the box site, please pick it up and put it in the nearby trash can. Thank you.
