Clues

Discretion was key when I chose the hiding spot for this box. I found a light post with a loose base right next to the thermometer just like the one at Del Taco in Barstow, but decided against that location. Any spot that was actually next to the thermometer was in constant view of the busy Baker Boulevard.

Take I-15 to Baker. Exit at the Kelbaker Road / Death Valley ramp. Turn north (towards town). You will come to a 4 way stop. Mad Greek restaurant will be across the corner on the right and Los Dos Toritos Mexican restaurant will be on the left. Go straight through the intersection and continue approximately one mile (you will be on hwy 127 to Death Valley). After passing the school on the right look for a green sign indicating the distance to Shoshone, Death Valley, and Lanthrop Wells. Park by the sign (the airport will be on your left). Look east from the sign. 100 steps away is a white post. The box is in a rock pile at the base of the post.

Please cover the box completely when you’re finished.
