Clues

To start this letterbox trip you have to go to the Big Larch campground near Seeley Lake,Mt.Park at the ampitheater parking lot, pick up a trail map(if they have one) and walk the nature trail.............

TO FIND THIS BOX
WALK BY THE LAKE
GO PAST #1 THRU #4
DO NOT DEVIATE

AT MARKER POST #5
BY THE BIG BROKEN LARCH
GO LEFT ON THE TRAIL
TO CONTINUE THE MARCH

FOLLOW THE TRAIL 1/4 MILE OR SO
PAST A BEAVER LODGE
MARSHES,GRASSES,AND FROGS
AND QUITE A FEW FALLEN LOGS
YOU WILL HAVE TO DODGE

KEEP THE LAKE TO YOUR LEFT
NOT TO FAR TO GO
STAY IN THE TREE LINE
YOU MAY HAVE TO WALK SLOW

LOOK FOR A CABIN
THAT DIED LONG AGO
NOW FALLEN AND BROKEN
FROM WEATHER AND SNOW

STAND AT THE DOOR
STARE AT THE NORTH CORNER
LOOK DOWN ON THE GROUND
LIKE LITTLE JACK HORNER

BOX #2

I'VE ADDED ANOTHER
TO MAKE THIS MORE FUN
RETURN TO THE NATURE TRAIL
TO CONTINUE THIS RUN

FROM POST #5
GO TO POST #6
STAY ON THE TRAIL
OR YOU'LL BE IN A FIX

STAND AT THE POST
LOOK FOR A BIRD HOUSE
UP HIGH ON A TREE
IT'S BEEN THERE A WHILE
AS YOU CAN PLAINLY SEE

WITH YOUR BACK TO THE TREE
TAKE A READING WITH YOUR COMPASS
ON A LINE OF 50 DEGREES
THAT'S NORTHEAST FOR THE KIDDIES
THAT COME TO OUR KNEES

WALK 30 PACES
MAYBE MORE
MAYBE LESS
TO A SAWED OFF STUMP
THATS A ROTTEN OLD MESS

IT HAS BARK AND CHIPS
AND PINE CONE PIECES ALL OVER
FROM A SQUIRREL I'M SURE
WHO'S NAME IS RED ROVER

LOOK INTO THE STUMP
INSIDE NOT AROUND
LOOK REALLY HARD
AND THE LETTERBOX IS FOUND
