The "Prancing Bull" letterbox is located at Seven Falls, near Colorado Springs. The falls are great to see, day or night, but to get the box you will need to climb up all the stairs to the top, then hike up half the trail to the Helen Hunt Jackson Memorial. There is a fee to enter this park.
Directions: Exit 140B off I-25 in Colorado Springs, on Tejon St, then west on Cheyenne Blvd to the park entrance. Pay fee at entry, and park. Walk to base of falls.
To the Microbox:
Climb the stairs to the top of the top waterfall. Take path to trail junction. Go left on Inspiration point trail and climb toward grave of Helen Hunt Jackson. At big swish back, look for 2 benches. Rest awhile on 2nd bench (farthest back), then go through opening in the rail fence behind this bench. Now go leftish up the hill to the 2 pine trees 10 steps away. Micro is behind 2nd tree, on the uphill side, covered.
