Clues

This box is conveniently located along the Lariat Loop, for everyone doing the Lariat Loop series.

A little bit of catnip is hiding in big cat country. To find it, take Interstate 70 to exit 254. Follow the signs to Genesee Park (on the South side of I-70, turn right at the T intersection). Travel on Genesee Mountain Road uphill to the large parking area closest to the top of the mountain. During the winter months, the road is blocked past this parking area. No one was around when I hid the box, but I think this place could be very busy in summertime.

Park in the lot and approach the three handicapped parking spaces. Near the spaces is a sign describing the park rules. Walk east from this sign to find the horseshoe pits. Stand by the pole in the southern horseshoe pit. Set your compass to 120 degrees and take 68 steps to a tree with boulders at its base. You can find catnip hidden under a large rock 6 feet behind this tree, beneath some small rocks and twigs.

Hand carved stamp (thanks to Rambliní Rose), journal, pen and inkpad. First finders reward.
