Our Girl Scout Troop has enjoyed letterboxing for the past several years and were anxious to submit their own. We hope you enjoy finding it as much as we enjoyed "planting" it.
This letterbox is rated EEEE-ZEEE for the first-time compass reader and should take no more than 15 minutes to find.

Starting at the north side of Korn Elementary School find the three metal piers. Walk 75 paces West and look for the 5 giant tree stumps. Look up to find the "Wild Woods Nature Trail" sign. Descend down the path. Stay straight on the path past the giant tree. When you come to the end of the path bear right. Proceed to the right of the iron giant and the dirty diamond. When you get to the red brick path go right on the path. Skip while singing "follow the red brick road" to the tune of "follow the yellow brick road". Continue skipping and singing until you get to the weeping willow. Take a breath and walk 43 paces straight ahead. Bear northwest on the flagstone path to the stone bench. Sit with you back to the babling brook. Now after you've rested, head to the jungle and have a game of tic-tac-toe. When you're done with the game slide down the longest straight slide. Head southeast looking for 5 burning bushes. Count the bushes from left to right. Between 3, 4 and 5 dig gently at the center and enjoy our buried treasure!
