Forget-Me-Not is safe and sound and in a new home. Thanks to Tiger Traks & her daughter for finding and rescuing our letterbox. We really appreciate your efforts!

We placed this one during our letterboxing trip to Columbia, MO. My brother-in-law, High Flyer, grew up in Columbia and he wanted to share this beautiful city with the rest of the family. My sister, Dafi Daffodil, wanted to leave this little momento behind. This location, you see, is very special to both of them, as it is the spot where High Flyer proposed to his lovely Daffodil.

Find your way to Capen Park. From the parking lot island travel east and take path on the left. Travel uphill to the right from the rock where you'll find your roots. Keep left on path going up and climb the natural rock steps until you reach the summit. Stop to catch your breath and take in the beautiful view. Find the natural bench, take a seat and think of someone you love. Here's where he proposed. From the natural bench take the path up at 330 degrees. Quickly, you will come to another lookout point. On the south side, you will find this bouquet waiting for you in a deep rock ledge at the base of a lone tree. Please be aware of your surroundings - it's a long way down!"

Please enjoy the contents and be sure to carefully reseal and rehide when finished.
