Begin your journey at Hartment Park in Lyme, Connecticut.

Let's have a happy day!
-Start at the chalkboard/picnic area (just beyond the parking lot) and walk by a beautiful little stream.
-With your back towards the chalkboard, look to the map sign (about 336 degrees) and happily start the pink trail!
-Hey! Don't be too serious... find the large rock to your left that overlooks the little pond and a bird feeder, do you hear the happy birds? Awesome!
-Continue down the trail and watch you step, it's rocky.
-At the fork turn 320 degrees and head on. Can you see the big tree with bare, pointy branches? Wow, what a happy sound that waterfall makes around the bend.
-Be brave while you cross the litte bridge!
-It may get a little wet, but don't let that stop you from smiling, you're getting closer.
-When you get to the piile of rocks (near the dam) the treasure hunt begins...
-Stand at the tree with three trunks, it has a faded pink trail marker on it.
-Head north with your climbing face on!
-Go to the highest point (closest to the power lines and water's edge) and give a yell!
-Now, face 54 degrees and carefully walk down to the water
-Turn to face 250 degrees and look below the ferns that blanket the large rock.
-Your prize is just a hop, skip and jump away (about 9 steps) Be prepared to crawl!!! Be Happy!
