The young letterboxer wandered to South Ridge Community Park, passing the high school on the way. Being homeschooled, her classroom was outside today. It was a lovely spring day, and who knew what a small patch of community-held nature would reveal?

At the park, she played "Mother May I?" with two of her younger brothers, where she was commanded to take 54 paces down the path.

This had her seeing red, and thinking of the "Three Billy Goats Gruff".

From there, she wandered a bit more (143 paces or so) until she came to rest at the bench. It was cold and blue, and she thought that she might not want to stay there very long.

Then, thoughts of mushrooms and nurse logs filled her head, and she turned 160 degrees to the fallen tree in the underbrush and brambles.

On the end closest to the path, she lost herself viewing the marvels of the deep underside of logs.


This park is frequented by lots of people. Please try to be discrete when finding and replacing the box. It is under there a good way, and hidden, so don't give up.
Return the box better than you found it, and watch for those brambles.
