Serial Mystery Letterbox
Start at a trailhead on a near-Alpine Summit. A fifteen minute walk takes you through a narrow tract with house lots on both sides, past a fifty or sixty year old car fossil, and across a small power line. The trail reenters the woods as some stairs veer off to another trailhead near a boat named after a mammal. The trail passes some new house construction and things improve steadily. A small stream does nice things to a rock ledge near the first of several bridges. The trail drops and fifteen minutes from the power line/ second trailhead it reaches the river. Follow the river to the right over more bridges. The rapids lie eight more minutes down the path.
From some new peeled-log stairs (just before the rapids) take twenty-five steps back along the trail. A tree with three trunks stands seven steps uphill of the path; your prize lies inside the box. Please rehide well so it can not be seen by those coming up the path. A rocky clearing (a great place to sit high above the river and stamp up) exists just a minute further up the trail. Enjoy!
