The answers to the questions in the clues for this webbox are located in Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument in central Colorado. Letterboxes are not allowed to be physically placed in national parks and 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.
