Make your way to the Mesa Overlook parking lot. From I-25, take the Garden of the Gods Rd exit heading west. At the end of Garden of the Gods Rd, take a left onto N. 30th St. About .7 mi down the road, bear left on Mesa Rd. Head up the hill for .4 mi to the parking lot on your right. Park here. Head south through the barrier stones. Near the hillside, there is a faint "path" you can take to avoid walking through the brush. Walk all the way to the wall. From where the wall meets the chain link fence, walk back towards the road, counting evergreen trees. When you get to #6, a cone-shaped tree about 12' tall, look between it and the wall for a slab of rock. GoG lies beneath!

Please be stealthy, as there is a private residence behind that wall (lucky dogs-what a view!). You may wish to bring the box back to your car to stamp in, or move away from the hiding spot so as not to draw attention to yourself and what you are doing. Lots of people like to hang out in their cars in the lot to enjoy the view, especially around lunchtime, it seems. I also believe that the lot is locked at night.

No ink in the box; please bring your own. As always, please rehide the box better than you found it! Thanks, and enjoy the awesome view!
