Hike Distance?

This letterbox was place by our Girl Scout Troop. It has a hand made stamp, bring your own stamp pad. As always in this part of the world, watch out for poison ivy. This is a short walk.

This letterbox is hidden in Walnut Grove at Scott Country Park. To get to the park, take Hwy. 61 to Exit 129 to Park View. Go toward Park View to the four-way stop, turn left. Turn right on 290th St / St. Ann’s Road (or drive through Scott Co. Park.)

To park during a time when Walnut Grove Village is open, there’s a lot across the street. Otherwise, just pull in one of the driveways and park by the gate.

Saying a prayer is a good way to start.
Need new shoes or a saddle repaired?
Reading and writing and arithmetic,
Pledge allegiance to the flag
See the home fires burning?
Don’t rob that bank, it happened just last week
Count the pickets at the water pressure device
How many are there? Write it here ________
Oh, how the moon does shine from the room with a moon
Set your compass to the number of pickets and count 40 paces
Come out, come out, wherever you are
What you seek is living in a tree that isn't.

When you’re finished, please hide the letterbox well. Enjoy!
