This box is located in the south part of Safford. From southern Arizona: from I-10 east of Willcox, go north on U.S. 191 to Safford. After passing the county fairgrounds on the right, turn left (west) at the first stop light onto Discovery Park Blvd. Drive about ½ mile to a trailhead on the right side of the road and park there. It has an information sign with a small shingled roof on it.

Walk north on the paved pathway. You will pass a concrete picnic table on the right. You will then come to a utility wire crossing over the path. From exactly under the wire, walk about 4 more steps to a large (about 4 ½ feet high) old wood fence post on the right. From the wood post walk about 3 more steps. From that point, go off path at about 60 degrees (from mag. north) for about 17 steps to the base of the slope. Continue in the same direction up the slope for about 12 more steps to a large (about 5 feet high) Creosote Bush at the edge of a small terrace. The box is under the northeast side of the bush under a rock covered with some twigs and plant debris.

Please 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), and put all of it INSIDE the box. Please rehide the box well under the rock covered with some twigs and other plant debris so that it can not be seen from any direction.

I will not be able to check on this box; so, please let me know if you find it. Also, let me know if it is missing so that I can delete the clues:
