ASL also known as American Sign Language, is the third most used Language in the Untited States

This Conservatory is best known for the swarm of Blue Birds in the summer! (No! Not the letterboxer!)

From 184, Turn left onto Pumpkin Hill Road (heading North). Drive a ways until you see your first yellow Nature Sanctuary on a wooden post/beam on your right. Park anywhere there(not much parking sorry).

Go southeast on the Blue Blazed trail. You will come to wetlands with about 15 stepping stones-cross it. You will soon go through a stone wall. Continue until you see a tree with three blue marks-which means intersection-turn right and pass through the stone wall. Continue until you are at a third stone wall-Turn left and step over a fallen log, then take 4 true paces-turn around and look in a small rock cavern in the stone wall-with a rock slap acting as if a trap door. Here you will find "The Signed 'I love you' Letterbox."

Now go back to the trail and continue the way you were going. Pass through another rock wall-until you pass through another. You will come to a "Y" in the trail, stay LEFT on the blue blazed trail! Before the next stone wall that you shall pass through-look to the right for a siamese twin tree. From there take a reading of 250 Degrees-and take 10 paces to the tree which you are directed (One large Trunk and one small, with dead log in split of tree.) Look on the west side of the tree, under a rock-once again acting as a trap door- you will find "The 'Signed Father' Letterbox."

Now Continue back to the Blue Blazed trail and continue the way you were going. You will soon come to the road-Turn back. When you come to your second rock wall turn left into the North West corner past a small well, look to right to a tree with four trunks. Look at the base of this tree behind a guarding slab to find "The 'Signed Mother' Letterbox." Please rehide carefully-for this spot is "Well" visited!

Go back to the Trail the way you were headed, until the three way intersection, turn left until you get to the stepping stones. Look for the Ugliest tree you can see, in front of it, is a triple trunker, look in the center under a rock, you will find "The 'Signed Cat' Letterbox." Now continue straight on the path and you will end up back to your car.

Please let me know how my series is doing and if the ASL signs on the stamps are understandable. Any questions or comments are welcome.
