Find a good sewage plant and you are likely to find a birdwatcher (or in this case, a letterboxer.) Sweetwater Wetlands is known to birders as a favorite spot for spotting wintering waterfowl and the occassional avian rareity. In addition, a family of Harris Hawks is often seen in the tall trees across the road.

To the trailhead: From exit #254/Prince Road on I-10, go west on Prince and turn right on N Business Center Drive. After .6 mile this road curves left and turns into Sweetwater Drive. The parking lot to the Wetlands is .2 miles farther on the left.

To the letterbox: Stand in the center of 25 rosy squares resting beside a pair of bumble bee barber poles. 16 steps at 240 degrees magnetic will bring you to the letterbox. Keep your eyes peeled for those sneaky and very quiet birdwatchers. Look beside a trunk under a rock.
