The answers to the questions in the clues for this webbox are located in Yellowstone National Park in northwestern Wyoming. Letterboxes are not allowed to be physically placed in national parks. 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 and sign the log book.
Enter Yellowstone National Park. Go to the West Thumb Geyser Basin and park there.
Walk on the Geyser Basin boardwalk using the main entrance which is just north of the Information Station/Bookstore. You will soon arrive at a large interpretive sign titled “West Thumb Geyser Basin”, subtitled “Steaming Lakeshore”. In the first paragraph, in the sixth line, what is the fourth word?
Walk on the outer loop. Look for an interpretive sign titled “An Exploded Bay”. In the first paragraph, in the second line, what is the last word?
To create the mystery word, add the word from the second question to the end of the word from the first question (without spaces). Paste the mystery word into this URL (replacing the question marks “???” with the mystery word):
Now, plug the new URL into your web browser and you will have completed your search for the Yellowstone Park Webbox.
