The answers to the questions in the clues for this webbox are located in Chiricahua National Monument in southeastern Arizona. 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.
From I-10 in Willcox, drive south on State Highway 186 and enter Chiricahua National Monument. Park in the lot for the visitor center.
At the eastern end of the parking lot is the start of the Rhyolite Canyon Trail. At the start of the trail is a large information sign titled “Rhyolite Canyon Trails”. In the small lone paragraph just below the map (starts with the words “From this point you can take”), in the last (fourth) line, what is the first word ______?
Walk on the trail for a fairly short distance until you see an interpretive sign just off the left side of the trail. It is titled “Fire and Flood”. In the first paragraph (starts with the words “Rhyolite Canyon was not always”), in the last (fourth) line what is the first 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 into this URL (replacing the question marks “???” with the mystery word):
Now, plug/paste/type the new URL into your web browser and you will have completed your search for the Chiricahua Monument Webbox.
