** In place as of March 2015 **
In Ranchester, turn south on Gillette St. and drive towards the Connor Battlefield campground. At the end of the road:
Find the path over water
And walk straight as an arrow
To a beast slaughtered
By Arapahoe for meat and clothing.
Learn about Black Bear and Connor
From a sign to the south(ish).
Wagons + troops is the number
To subtract from calvary to get X.
Along the road you’ll view
A tall stone marker.
Once there, the number you’ll use
With your compass is X.
Walk towards the Tongue
On this reading a ways
Until you reach the last strung post
And carefully slide around.
Take 30 paces back along the fence
To a large broken up tree
Look around the south side
Under some bark and leaves.
Make sure you are discrete in your letterbox hunting - in the summer there are lots of campers and picnickers! Please cover the box back up as best you can (it's easiest reached from the south side!)
