Clues

Update July 2010:

Third time is a charm. The box has been replaced once again.

New Clue: Go to the Lily Lake in the Amana Colonies. Park in the parking lot on 220th Trail. From the lot, take the trail East around the lake. When you come to Jordon's bench, sit down and enjoy the view and all the birdlife. When you tire of the view, continue down the trail in the direction you were going. Eventually you approach where trees start to line the path. Look at the base of the second evergreen on the left.

Update August 2009:
Box has gone missing again. Will try to replace one more time and will update the clue when available.

New Stamp and New Clue 10/25/08:
The box is replaced and the clue slightly modified.
Go to the Lily Lake in the Amana Colonies. Park in the parking lot on 220th Trail. From the lot, take the trail East around the lake. When you come to Jordon's bench, sit down and enjoy the view and all the birdlife. Now turn back the way you came and take 30 steps down the path. Take 12 steps toward the lake. On your immediate right should be a woody shrub about 6 feet tall. Check the base.

Update 07/05/2008:
Checked on this letterbox today. Unfortunately it did not survive the floods and high water of June. No sign of it in the area. We will recarve and replace soon, but for now this box is MIA.


Go to the Lily Lake in the Amana Colonies. Park in the parking lot on 220th Trail. From the lot, take the trail East around the lake. When you come to Jordon's bench, sit down and enjoy the view and all the birdlife. Take a compass bearing of 270 degrees to a small maple on the shore of the lake. At the base you will find the box under some rocks.
