      Bring your own ink. This is a letterbox, not a geocache. Please do not remove the stamps and please do not leave any trinkets.

      This is a memorial to an enthusiast; my letterboxing friend Hi Desert--Xeric=of the desert, Vertex=high place. She wouldn't have been able to do the hike but she'd had her husband drive her up.

      Driving directions: From the I-25, I-40 intersection in Albuquerque, take I-40 East to the Tijeras exit. Bear right and then get in the middle lane at the stop light. Go up 337 to the Ranger Station. This is a great spot to use the facilities, view the exhibits and visit with the ranger about the area. Otherwise keep going on 337 past Tunnel Canyon, past Otero Canyon, to the left turn bay at Juan Tomas. Turn left on Juan Tomas (242) and drive a little less than a mile to (252). It's marked with a Cedro Group Campground sign. Turn left onto 252 and follow it just past the Group Campground to the trailhead marker on the right. If you're in the mood for a hike of less than a mile, leave the car here. The hardest part is finding the trail because everywhere seems to be the trail. Just keep going up towards the towers. If your knees don't let you hike, keep driving up to the top and the fire observatory tower. The roads a little rough and I'd probably prefer not going up in a low-centered vehicle, but there's lots of scrapped rocks showing that low slung sedans have make the climb. Park at the top.

      Clues: 2,r,10,4/ w,e,9,t/ leg/ 10,2/ 9,10,u,t,h/ e,i,2,2,e,l/ U,11,12,e,r/ t,h,i,r,12/ l,4,r,g,e/ 9,t,10,11,e/ 9,w.

      Hint: Numbers aren't numbers but months, or at least parts of months.

      Please be stealthy, Please sit down and look like you're taking in the view so the observer in the fire tower or her dog don't get too suspicious. Please move away to stamp in. Stick the move as far back under the rock as you can get and cover with rocks.
      Thanks for playing.

        Clues:
        Please do not take the stamp in trade--this is a letterbox not a geocache. Bring your own ink.

        Planted as part of Plant a Beer Day letterboxing event, 2017. https://www.atlasquest.com/showinfo.html?eventId=3822

        Brewery is open noon to midnight.

        Directions: From the Intersection of I-25 and I-40 in Albuquerque go south on I-25 towards Belen. Get in the right lane immediately and right turn onto Lomas. After passing Broadway and the railroad tracks, turn right onto 1st street. After a couple of blocks you'll come to the brewery and you can park north and east of it in the lot marked for Marble Brewery Customers. Do not jaywalk when going to the brewery--go to the intersection.

        Clues: The patrons of the methadone clinic park here so please be extra stealthy. There are security cameras watching as well. Please grab the letterbox and take it with you to stamp in while inspecting the brewery and perhaps sampling some wares. Do not tarry here.

        Behind the rock and under another sow's thigh id π lawn (look closely, that mathematical symbol all by itself is not a lower case n.)

        Of course, please replace rocks like you found them.

        Thanks for playing.
