Old road at 110, tall spiny soldier at 150.
This green soldier wears an old belt at his foot. How did it get there? This soldier is ancient, perhaps 150 years. In fact, this type of soldier only begins to raise his arms at 75! Perhaps a passerby in an earlier time placed a barrel over this soldier¹s head when he was just a boy. The barrel is gone but its hoop remains.
Old soldiers and barrel hoops are mysterious but you search for something else. Turn away from the soldier to 140 and walk 8 steps. Another old soldier of sorts lies here. At his foot is what you seek. Hey! Dont reach in there, this is Arizona for Pete's sake! Use a stick or you could get more than you bargain for!
Ponder the mysteries here and replace for other seekers to follow.
Warning: Always be careful when reaching into crevices and holes. Wear gloves and/or use a stick to poke around first. Animals often share the natural habitat of letterboxes.
