The answers to the questions in the clues for this webbox are located in Fort Union National Monument in northwestern New Mexico. Letterboxes are not allowed to be physically placed in national parks and national monuments administered by the 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.

Enter Fort Union National Monument and park at the visitor center.

Exit the back of the visitor center and start on the trail to the fort ruins. At the start of the trail is a large interpretive sign between two white poles titled “Fort Union National Monument”; it has a map of the fort on the left side of the sign and a picture of a mule drawn wagon on the bottom. In the 1st paragraph, in the 1st line (starts with the words “Welcome to Fort Union), what is the 8th word ______?

Continue walking on the path to the fort and look for a colorful interpretive sign titled “Historic Preservation”. In the 1st paragraph, in the 2nd line (starts with the word “performing”), what is the 5th 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 Fort Union Monument Webbox
