WARNING! BART stations #1-#5 are crappie stamps. I was new to carving and I was bad.
I've not replaced them because I think it's important for new letterboxers to know that it's ok to be new at this and ok to suck at first. We all get better!


We wanted to do a series that celebrates something unique about the Bay Area; and we also wanted some "rainy-day-car-trip-no-muddy-shoes" letterboxes. These are all easy to drive to, or, in fact, to BART to! We hope to add a box at every station in the Bay Area.


At the far West side of the main parking lot, you will see two waterfalls of broken concrete and rocks. Go to the one on the left. Stand at space 240 and look up into the rocks. There are three pine trees. You want the tree in the middle/back. Under that pine, next to a very small oak, is a red-striped rock. To the right of that, you will see a water drain cover. Look behind the drain cover, remove a rock, and find the box under the large rock.
