Mines of Spain (Missing) LbNA # 6234 (ARCHIVED)
|Placed Date||Oct 27 2003|
(Ed: Reported possibly missing 2/1 by artzler)
This letterbox is located in the Mines Of Spain Recreation Area, which is located just south of Dubuque, Iowa, on the Mississippi River.
You can enter the recreation area from either entrance and head toward the Julian Dubuque Monument. At the "T" intersection go up the hill toward the monument. From the stop sign you will go just .2 mile. Park your car and take the Julian Dubuque Foot Trail. Go down the steps (22 of them)at the entrance of the trail. At the foot of the steps, looking straight ahead, 180 degrees South, is a big tree about 15 steps ahead. The light blue covered box is behind this tree.
It has been fun finding just the right spot for this letterbox.
