Finding Boxes in Santa Fe

Ever since my return from Minnesota I have been extremely busy and haven't been able to do any letterboxing. Today I was off from work and I didn't have any appointments or errands. So I decided to head out and find a couple of letterboxes that are hidden here in Santa Fe. I left home and made my way to Governor Miles Road to find a box by ArnoldZiffel, Art in the Round - Santa Fe. I followed the directions and parked. The clue said to look down to admire the art. I have to say I wasn't sure what I was looking for but I continued following the clues to find the box. Finding the box was easy and I grabbed it and found a spot to sit so I could stamp in. Once I opened the box and saw the stamp I realized what art I was supposed to see and everything made sense. I stamped in and then replaced the box so I could continue on for the next box. I have to say I love this stamp, it is a great carving.

Sena Plaza
For the next box I made my way to the Plaza. Whenever I visit the downtown area I usually park across the street from the Capitol and then walk. so that is what I did. I parked in the parking lot for the old PERA building and then walked to the Plaza and made my way to Sena Plaza. This is a courtyard with lots of different things. There is La Casa Sena, Goler Shoes, Todos Santos Chocolates, Zephyr Clothing, Sock Magic, and other shops in this area and there is also a beautiful garden. I got there just a little before lunch and there were already a few people sitting outside at La Casa Sena so I had to be really sneaky. I pretended to be taking pictures and was able to grabbed the box without anyone noticing. I took it back to a bench to sit and stamp in. This box is called Santa Fe by C4. It is a nice carving and a very sneaky hiding spot. Once I finished stamping in I had to repeat my faux picture taking to rehide the box. After the box was back in place I left Sena Plaza and walked around the Plaza and eventually made my way back to the car. It was a nice morning of letterboxing in Santa Fe and I would like to thank ArnoldZiffel and C4 for two nice boxes.
