This box is next to the location where Japanese
citizens were imprisoned during World War II.
See www.wikipedia.org for more details.
The 43rd Annual Manzanar Pilgrimage
takes place. From dusk til 5pm. A big event.
Go about a 1/4 mile north of the camp.
Five large trees are grouped together in
between the N and S highway lanes.
It looks like a micro rest area.
Be careful as autos fly by here at high speeds.
Park in the middle of this area where it is safer.
Start at the large pump which is fenced off.
Walk 50 paces south and you will locate
large broken cement blocks.
Look for the block the shape of a curb.
Pull it out and there you will find the box.
Be cautious as critters can make this area
into a nice comfy home. I am a big box.
You can also walk from Manzanar but watch out
for the speeding cars.
Inside the museum they also have a Manzanar stamp.
