Plain Plane Letterbox off same trail.
Originally planted by Grumpy Grinch and adopted in January 2011 by Desert Flower.
New clues as of 4/21/15
This box was placed at the last minute for the 5th annual Tucson Letterbox Gathering. There were 12 boxes in place in the area of the original location. Snow closed the road the morning of the gathering so we all met at a lower elevation in Tucson's McDonald Park. One cannot have a gathering without letterboxes to seek! Fortunately we had two boxes with us which we gladly placed for the participants. We leave them in place for your enjoyment.
McDonald Park, 4100 North Harrison Road. North of Tanque Verde Rd, W of Catalina Highway.
Enter park at blue-gray wooden sign on field stone base. Drive past ball 7fields, turn right at colorful playground to South parking lot.
Walk to yellow metal gate and follow asphalt trail to where the baseball field fence meets the asphalt path, cross the gully to your left. Turn left at the top of the gully, follow it east then northeast. Pass three teenage saguaros on the left and an old timer, turned into a skeleton, on the right. Pass a green rectangle on the ground on your left. At the second green rectangle (back off the trail on the left side), angle left. In front of this green rectangle sight at 182 degrees to a eucalyptus near the fence, about 55 steps away. There is no clear path to this tree, you will be walking through creosote and desert broom to get to the box. Look at its feet on the W side beneath a square rock and debris.
Adopted from Grumpy Grinch in 11/09.
Thanks for their carving and placement.
