This box is located in a county park between the communities of Oconomowoc and Hartland, 1/2 mile north of U.S. Highway 16 on the west side of County Highway C. There is a daily fee to enter Waukesha County Parks ($5 in 2005) or you can purchase an annual pass for access to all county parks. After entering the park, head to Picnic Area 2 and park in the lot.

This is the last box we’ll hide this year, since it is December 31, 2004. It was a great day – no snow, sunny and temperatures in the mid-40s … not bad at all for Wisconsin!

We’re getting ready to go out for New Year’s Eve, so here are some minimalist clues. I hope the 3-word phrases aren’t too obscure.
