The answers to the questions in the clues for this webbox are located in Guadalupe Mountains National Park in far western Texas. Letterboxes are not allowed to be physically placed in national parks. 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 Guadalupe Mountains National Park. Go to the Visitor Center which is at Pine Springs just off U. S. Highways 62 & 180. Park there.
Look for the Pinery Trail which starts at the back of the patio on the left side of the Visitor Center. At the start of the trail is a fairly large metal interpretive sign titled “The Pinery Trail”. In the first paragraph (on the left) (starts with the word “Welcome”), in the sixth line, what is the last word ____?
Continue walking on the Pinery Trail. Look for a small metal interpretive sign titled “Soaptree Yucca Yucca elata”. In the first paragraph (starts with the words “Soaptree yucca was”), in the fifth line, what is the last 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):
Now, plug/paste/type the new URL into your web browser and you will have completed your search for the Guadalupe Mountains Park Webbox.
