From Australia to Arizona Letterbox
This box is in the Coronado National Forest northeast of Tucson. Driving towards Tucson from the east on I-10, take exit 275 and go north on Houghton Rd. Turn right on Catalina Highway. Going towards Tucson from the north on I-10, take exit 256 and drive east on Grant Rd. Turn left on Tanque Verde Rd. Turn left on Catalina Highway. Driving up the highway look for mile post 4. Continue for 0.6 miles more and turn right into the Molino Canyon Vista. Walk down the paved path a short distance, turn right down the wooden steps, and walk southwest on the gravel path that goes along the ridge top. From the “Pine-Needle Milkweed” interpretive sign, go at about 250 degrees (from mag. north) for about 12 steps to a fairly flat boulder with a “point” on its west end. The box is under the point behind a white rock. Be alert for snakes.
This box was placed for the 5th Annual Tucson Letterboxers Gathering.
