From U. S. Highway 2 east of Essex, drive into the large Marias Pass parking and rest area on the southeast side of the highway. There is a tall Roosevelt obelisk and other monuments and statues there. Park there.
From the Roosevelt obelisk cross the parking lot to the trail at about 130 degrees (from mag. north). Walk on the trail for about 3 minutes until the trail takes a sharp left turn. Walk about 50 more steps from the middle of the turn. Look left for an approximately 5 feet tall stump on the left side of trail, about 15 steps off the trail. Walk off trail towards it and after about 10 steps look left for a trio of Pine Trees. The box is in the middle of the trio under a rock covered with some plant debris.
Please please be sure the contents are double ziplocked when you put them back in the box (i.e. the stamp is in a ziploc, the book is in a ziploc, and the two are in the larger ziploc bag). Please put the lid on tight. Please rehide the box well under the rock and covered with twigs and other plant debris so that it can not be seen from any direction.
Contact me if the box needs attention:
