Making Tracks East is the second of four in a series to be placed. This letterbox is hidden on the South Shore Trail at Shawnee Mission Park. Enter at the main entrance at 79th and Renner Road. Drive to Shelter 8 and park. The South Shore Trail will be at the end of the lot.

Enter the trail and immediately pass through a roofed area with four benches.

At the fork in the path turn east so you are headed downward, toward the lake.

At approximately 45-50 paces down (depending on how you count downward steps in the uneven terrain) look for a four-trunked tree on the left side of the path.

Do you see tracks on the ground around this tree? Look behind it, under the rocks. Can you identify these tracks? Do you know WHO GOES THERE? (A second box, with a stamp of the animal which made the tracks, disappeared. Send me an email with your guess and I will let you know if you are right!)

Please cover the box up well when you are through. I’d love to receive a status report on the box. Thanks!
