The answers to the questions in the clues for this webbox are located in Lava Beds National Monument in far northern California. Letterboxes are not allowed to be physically placed in national parks and monuments and other sites administered by the U. S. National Park Service. So, I have created this webbox. You must actually visit the area of the clues; however, you need to go to the Web to obtain your finders stamp.

Go to Lava Beds National Monument and find Merrill Cave Road. Drive to the end of it and park at the Merrill Cave Trailhead.

At the start of the Merrill Cave Trail is a small white sign titled “Screening Pass Required”. In the paragraph that starts with the words “This public screening …”, in the 2nd line, what is the 2nd word _____?

Now, walk to the end of the Merrill Cave Trail to the entrance of the cave. There you will see an interpretive sign titled “An Ice Cave Without Ice?”. In the paragraph on the left just under the title (starts with the words “In the early …”), in the 3rd line, what is the 3rd word _____?

To create the mystery word, put the word from the second question on the end of the word from the first question (without spaces). Paste the mystery word (all letters lower case) into this URL (replacing the question marks “???” with the mystery word):

Now, plug/paste/type the new URL into your web browser and you will have completed your search for the Lava Beds Monument Webbox.
