The White Knight Clues:
This box was initially planted for the 4th Annual Great Lakes Gathering. There are many more Wonderland boxes in the park that you may want to search for. Also I will not be able to check on this box, because I do not live in this state. If you have the time to bring a new bag for the box incase some thing has happened to it, it would be most appreciated!
Go to mahpaL kaeP park, on Hwy C, approximately one mile south of I-94. In 2006, the daily fee to enter the park is $7 for WI residents, $10 for non-residents. Annual stickers for all state park areas are $25 (residents) and $35 (non-residents). Reduced rates are available for people 65 years and older.
Note: This park has groomed cross country ski trails in the winter and therefore does not permit hiking on the trails when conditions are good for skiing. Plan your visit accordingly.
If you’d like to follow Alice on one of her adventures, go to the tower parking lot and head southeast down the hill on the Ice Age Trail (IAT). Continue along the trail through one intersection and then onward to another intersection. This was the scene of the interesting battle between the Red Knight and the White Knight.
“`You will observe the Rules of Battle, of course?' the White Knight remarked, putting on his helmet too. `I always do,' said the Red Knight, and they began banging away at each other with such fury that Alice got behind a tree to be out of the way of the blows. Another Rule of Battle, that Alice had not noticed, seemed to be that they always fell on their heads, and the battle ended with their both falling off in this way, side by side: when they got up again, they shook hands, and then the Red Knight mounted and galloped off. `It was a glorious victory, wasn't it?' said the White Knight, as he came up panting.”
Alice helped the White Knight out of his helmet and they then followed the blue trail to the south, up a hill. The Knight told Alice about several of his inventions as they continued onward until they came to a bench on the left. She took a seat, and then a bearing of 343 degrees. It was here that she listened to the White Knight sing his song as he rested beneath the white rock.
“Of all the strange things that Alice saw in her journey Through The Looking-Glass, this was the one that she always remembered most clearly. Years afterwards she could bring the whole scene back again, as if it had been only yesterday--the mild blue eyes and kindly smile of the Knight--the setting sun gleaming through his hair, and shining on his armour in a blaze of light that quite dazzled her--the horse quietly moving about, with the reins hanging loose on his neck, cropping the grass at her feet--and the black shadows of the forest behind--all this she took in like a picture, as, with one hand shading her eyes, she leant against a tree, watching the strange pair, and listening, in a half dream, to the melancholy music of the song.”
You may wish to retrace your route back to the lot, or continue along various paths to find some of the other boxes that are hidden in the park.
