From U. S. Highway 60 at the west side of Globe, drive northwest on State Highway 188. At the junction with State Highway 288, turn north on Highway 288. Drive about 7 miles and turn right on Cherry Creek Road. It is a well graded dirt road. Drive about 1 mile to a large circular pull out on the right and park there.

From the large Creosote Bush on the edge of the road between the two entrances to the pull out, walk at about 290 degrees (from mag. north) for about 78 steps to a small Saguaro Cactus without arms. From that Saguaro, go at about 254 degrees for about 8 steps to a Jojoba Bush. The box is under the west side of the bush under a flat rock behind a larger rock and covered with some twigs and other plant debris.

Please be sure the contents are double ziplocked when you put them back in the box (i.e. the stamp is in a ziploc, the book is in a ziploc, and the two are in the larger ziploc bag). Please put the lid on tight. Please rehide the box well under the flat rock and covered with twigs and other plant debris so that it can not be seen from any direction.

Contact me if the box needs attention:
