Geocache Description:

Visit Full Metal Yucca details at the DGP

A half mile hike to the cache hidden near a 22-foot-tall aluminum yucca. Surreal, but fun.

I suggest that you park at N 35 04.121, W 106 29.077, and follow paths through the Albuquerque Open Space foothills trails to make your way toward the cache. The last couple of hundred yards will be off trail.

California artist Gordon Huether created this large outdoor scuplture for the state's Cultural Corridors public art program. The $124,000 sculpture was paid for by the U. S. Department of Transportation, the state and the city of Albuquerque's One Percent for Art program. The material used in the piece is salvaged aluminum fuel tanks from military aircraft, as a tip of the hat to nearby Kirtland Airforce base.

The cache is hidden approximately 75 feet north of the sculpture. Be cautious of your high-desert surroundings, and the possibility of rattlesnakes hiding in rock crevices. Due to high mountain landscape nearby and lots of rocks, GPS signals may bounce around. If you have trouble finding the cache (which I doubt), then decipher the clue for a visual hint.
