Lambency means the act of shining, like what old timey street lamps do; not like the search glares of modern street lights.

This is a letterbox, not a geocache. Please do not take the stamps as trade items and leave no trinkets.
Bring your own ink.

The Nob Hill district in Albuquerque is a revitalized section of Route 66 that has some street life to it. Particularly on weekend evenings crowds come to drink expressos, try ethnic or food truck delights, and people watch. Enjoy.

Directions: Head east on I-40 after leaving the I-40, I-25 intersection and exit right at the first opportunity on Carlisle. Go right onto Carlisle and head south past lights at Indian School, Constitution, and Lomas. Carlisle then narrows so slow down and take the right at Central. Find a place to park. Don't worry if you have to go a ways--strolling in this part of town is tres chic. Walk back to the intersection of Carlisle and Central.

Clues: On sunrise side of Golden Eagle, take the stairs. A wall of steam locamotive neither wins nor loses awaits. Some point skyward. Go sunriseward the number of a famous Love Potent and look in the niche too (sad eye drops) (goose feathers)on the Chicago side. Keep the piece of bark that's covering the treasure.

Please move away from the hiding spot to stamp in--maybe the stairs--so as not to attract the attention of all the drivers waiting at the stop light. I'd recommend not trying to act too stealthy--act like you belong there and you don't care who sees you because you're not doing anything suspicious. Please rehide well, behind the vertical, and cover with the bark.

Thanks for playing.
