This is Not a geocache. Please do not take the rubber stamps in trade and leave no trinkets.
It is a letterbox so bring your own ink.
A mile further is the Acoma Sky City Visitors' Center, and the tour of the ancient Pueblo village. Each year the Pueblo hosts the Tour de Acoma bicycle race--riders pedal for 25, 50 or 100 miles out here. They have been some of the most glorious rides of my life, if I make it up the hill.
Directions: Take exit 102 off of I-40 between Albuquerque and Gallup. Take Pueblo Road, or Indian Service Route (ISO) 30 south through the roundabouts. Follow the signs going to the museum. They should lead you to take a left off of Pueblo Road at Pinsbaari Drive or ISO 32. Then at the intersection with Haaku Road (ISO 35) take another left. Drive until you see the New Mexico historical marker off to the right in the middle of a large overlook. Park there. If you get to a very steep descent, you've gone too far.
Clues: I just love reading the old historical markers that the tax payers of the Land of Enchantment have spent their money on to educate all of us about the historical and cultural areas of significance . Sometimes I get a little tired though so I shift all of my weight to my right leg. In the little near schism, a SPOR.
Please do not let others see you as you search and make the grab on this letterbox. Perhaps park your vehicle so it blocks the view. So as to not attract undue attention to the hiding spot, please do not stamp in here. Maybe take it over to the overlook or inside your vehicle. Please do not let others see you when you rehide exactly where you found it, covered with rocks so no plastic is visible. Perhaps, bless it by throwing some dirt and gravel over it.
