Clues

Walking distance: 1 1/2 miles one way
Trail difficulty: moderate; it is a rocky dirt desert trail with a couple of ups and downs.

The answers to the questions in the clues for this webbox are located in Fort Bowie National Historic Site in southeastern Arizona. Letterboxes are not allowed to be physically placed in national parks, national monuments, and national historic sites 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, take exit 366 and go to Bowie. Follow the signs to Fort Bowie National Historic Site which is 12 miles south of town on a partly paved road. Park in the lot at the trailhead for the trail to the fort.

Start walking down the trail to the fort. Down the trail a short distance is a metal interpretive sign titled “The Trail to Fort Bowie”. In the paragraph on the left (the first line starts with the words “Your walk will be”), in the second line, what is the sixth word ______?

Continue walking on the trail to where it ends at the visitor center. Now look for a metal interpretive sign titled “Second Fort Bowie”. In the first paragraph on the left (the first line starts with the words “Two years after the”), in the second line, what is the fifth 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):
