The world's largest M is 241 feet high and 214 feet wide! You want to just stand and look up at it and go, "Mmmmm" as you ponder the heights to which you will need to go to find your prize. If you manage to make it on just the right night of the year, you might even have to walk through the fire to get to your prize! (Back in the days this was even more fraught with peril, my dad remembers laying in wait for the torch bearer. He and his friends planned to try to douse the torch in retaliation for an attempt of a pre-emptive bonfire lighting! What happened to the light hearted fun of the good old days and their pyrotechnic possibilities?) Once you make your way to the M, start your ascent. Climb, climb, climb, and think how much more fun it would be if you were making multiple climbs, and hauling all those rocks with you! Once you reach the top you will find a fenced in area of a more high tech nature. Go around the right side to the back corner and your prize is hidden in a pile of rocks. Please take the time to re-stack the rocks and be sure the box is completely covered.
