Description: An easy kid-friendly sidewalk journey, level and short (less than half mile round trip), stroller and wheelchair accessible. Your leashed pet is welcome. Please be responsible and clean up after your pet. Will require a little detective work in advance...
Clues: very easy

Directions: In Colorado Springs, I-25 to Woodman Exit. Head East on Woodman to Academy Blvd. Head north on Academy, then East on Briargate Blvd. to Chapel Hills Drive. Take Chapel Hills Drive North and refer to clues to find your final destination

Clues: Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to watch (or, and here I date myself, remember) The Great Muppet Caper. In the movie, Miss Piggy is wrongfully jailed for stealing something belonging to her employer, Lady Holliday. After you've done your RESEARCH and begin to drive North on Chapel Hills Drive, watch for Lady Holliday's missing items to appear ahead on your left. Turn west here. Turn in to the right to park with the league and begin your walk.

At the entrance to the parking, head East on the sidewalk along the road and towards Lady Faraday's missing items. After about a quarter of a mile, you will be between these items, and beside a low wall. There is an Aspen tree, then 2 pines. Take a seat on the wall as close as you comfortably can after the last pine. Just behind and against the wall where the gravel meets the pine needles you will find what you need to exonerate Miss Piggy.

There is an inkpad and pen in the box. Please be subtle as you go about your quest and be sure to rehide the letterbox well. Hope you enjoy!
