A paladin is a champion for justice and right.

This is not a geocache so please do not remove the stamp from the letterbox and add no trinkets.
Bring your own ink.
This is an active cemetery so if there is an internment ceremony going on nearby when you're searching, please wait until you're less likely to intrude on people's grief.

This cemetery holds the remains of Elfego Baca, one of the most interesting lawmen in American history. I remember watching the Disney miniseries as a kid that was based on some of his exploits. According to Disney he was called El Gato because, like a cat, he had nine lives--he escaped death time and again. See here:

Directions: From I-25 in Albuquerque, take the Menaul Exit west. Almost immediately the Sunset Memorial Park will be to the south. Turn in and go to the northeast corner of Cana and Rose. From the juniper trees there walk east along Cana to the next tree. Then turn north and go 11 gravestones until coming to the one for Elfego Baca.

Clues: The letterbox is in the 83ar36t 578i93r to Elfego Baca. On the 6,w a couple of 43t3r6 79.
Numbers aren't numbers but parts of names of planets. I'm old school so Mickey's dog still counts.

Please do not let anyone see you snag the letterbox. Please replace it exactly where you found it, all sealed up and hidden from view.
Thanks for playing.
