This box is located at the Ludlow Massacre Memorial, where more than enough history is described through the continuing efforts of the United Mine Workers Union.

This box and memorial is located right off the interstate.
Take I-25 South from Denver, Colorado Spring and Pueblo. Almost to the New Mexico border.

Walk through the gates and stop.
turn left and go 25 paces.
From the tall, skinned, non-lit pole face west.
Directly in your line of site, past and to the right of the lit-poles, locate a tree at the fence line.

Under the lip of this insignia is a pile of bark and rocks, remove them carefully to find the bag-box.
Please rehide well and out of sight from all angles. Any updates on its condition are appreciated as I live out of the country.
Since you have come so far, take your time in the site and perhaps drive further west on 44.0 1-2 miles to see the old coke ovens, and across the street visit the memorial to the Hasting Mine Explosion.
