Mischief Cat and I are working on a series of letterboxes which celebrate the Earth and its beauty!
The box for which you search is not quite a microbox, yet not a full-sized box, either.
This box may be found in Big Tree Park in the metro Orlando area. Big Tree Park is located on Thornton Ave., 2 blocks west of Mills Ave/17-92, roughly between Lake Highland Dr. and Marks St.
The beautiful oak that the park is named after is 500+ years old. There is a very informative plaque at the park, showing the tree's rings and the age it was as important events took place in history. Good material to read!
Once you reach Big Tree Park, take time to be awed by this majestic giant, with some of its limbs reaching back to the ground. Explore the interesting roots which offer many a fine hiding place for small, burrowing ceatures and other things...such as letterboxes!
Locate a root formation which resembles a mask. Carefully cross the roots in a north-westerly direction approximately
10 average steps. Search a small, low cave in the western wall of a root. The cave has been filled with leaves and moss - please be certain to rehide the box in its original location and cover it well with the same natural materials.
Please take the time to let us know the condition of the box. Please contact us also, if the rather small log book has been filled during your visit.
