Clues

Walking distance: very short
Trail difficulty: fairly easy, a paved path

The answers to the questions in the clues for this webbox are located in Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park in west-central Colorado. Letterboxes are not allowed to be physically placed in national parks and national monuments administered by the U. S. National Park Service. So, I have created this webbox. You must actually visit the area of the clues; however, you need to go to the Web to obtain your finders stamp and sign the log book.

Enter Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park which is off of U. S. Highway 50 east of Montrose. Go to the Visitor Center.

Walk on the trail to Gunnison Point which takes off from the back porch of the Visitor Center. Just after stepping down from the porch look for a small wood trail sign on the left side of the trail (it has a white arrow on it). In the first line, what is the second word ____?

Continue to the right on the trail to the Gunnison Point. Look for a large colorful interpretive sign titled “Pegmatite Dikes”. In the first paragraph (starts with the words “Over a billion”), in the sixth line, what is the fourth word ____?

To create the mystery word, put the word from the second question on the end of the word from the first question (without spaces). Paste the mystery word (all letters lower case) into this URL (replacing the question marks “???” with the mystery word):
