Version 2.0: this is the second location for this box.
Status: alive and well on October 23, 2016

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. Just as you enter the footbridge, there is a rock wall on the left with pinkish cement mortar between the rocks. Go down to its north end. The box is in a small "hidey hole" at the northeast corner of the wall between the corner and a large grey rock, at ground level. The entrance to the hole is covered by two small removeable rocks. This is a very public and highly visible area, so please be very discreet when retrieving and rehiding the box.

Please be sure the contents are double ziplocked when you put them back in the box (i.e. the stamp is in a ziploc, the book is in a ziploc, and the two are in the larger ziploc bag), put all of it INSIDE the box. Please rehide the box well in the hole and behind the small rocks and replace the rocks so that they look natural and like they belong there.

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.
