Clues

Walking distance: 2/3 mile round trip
Trail difficulty: easy, a flat moderately sloped path

The answers to the questions in the clues for this webbox are located in Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park in west-central Colorado. Letterboxes are not allowed to be physically placed in national parks and national 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.

Enter Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park which is off of U. S. Highway 50 east of Montrose. Drive on the South Rim Road to the Cedar Point Trailhead and park there.

Walk on the Cedar Point Nature Trail. Look for a small metal interpretive sign nailed to a wooden post with the title “SERVICEBERRY” In the paragraph (starts with the words “This member”), in the 2nd line, what is the 2nd word. ______?

Continue on the trail and look for a small metal interpretive sign on a wooden post with the title “SIDE GORGE”. In the paragraph (starts with the word “Tributary”), in the 2nd line, what is the 2nd 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):
