Do you know what Colorado State University used to be called? Colorado A & M you say? Where they called the Rams back then? NO? Colorado A & M actually began at Old Main, build in 1879 of stone near the corner of College and Laurel. The population in Fort Collins wasn't huge at the time, thus neither was the student population which was 25. Though many mascots this great university has seen, one will always be remembered by a landmark that cries "Aggie" for all to see. If your still not sure what I am talking about look to the west, as this symbol can been seen from miles away.
There will be a first finder “certificate” for the first finder of this letterbox. ENJOY!
1. I have to give credit where it is due as No No Girl and No No Girl's Brother beat me to the spot. Because of the view and the beauty (and of course because I had the box ready over 6 months ago) I went ahead and planted it.
2. From the point where you find the "A Mountain Monogram" Letterbox. Ascend the trail and walk down the other side of this white out.
3. Have you ever bought one of those white painted christmas trees in December? Well you can see a few of them "naturally" growing here. Walk to the first one from the top on the north side.
4. About 2 to 3 paces north and east from the "white christmas tree" you will find three white boulders/rocks that are way to heavy to move. However, on top of them are two white football sized rocks. By picking up the footballs you will reveal a hiding place for "The Aggie".
Please attempt to hide the box better than you found as this could be found by people that may not appreciate letterboxing the way that you an I do. The CSU ROTC walks up this hill yearly (I believe) around homecoming week to repaint the landscape so be sure to rehide well. Leave a message in the journal if you wish. If you want, please let me know when you find the box and it‘s condition. After you are done, check out the other letterboxes in Northern Colorado.
