Location: First stop: The church that a famous Wisconsin architect designed (although some think it looks like a UFO). Second stop: A nearby park.

Distance: Less than 1 mile Terrain: Grass and paved trails, off-trail in woods to retrieve box.
I’m hoping to do a series of boxes featuring some Milwaukee landmarks. This is the first box; others will be planted throughout the year.
To start your pilgrimage, visit this unique church and note the following:
A= _______ # of door panels on main entrance
B= _______ # angels above door
C= _______ # of crosses around the top of the church
D= _______ # of arched openings in the roof
Next continue your pilgrimage by driving north on 92nd Street until you reach a stoplight. Turn left and drive 1.25 miles to a major road that has several names. Turn left again and in less than .5 miles you’ll see a small park on your right. Park near the playground and do your math:
Continue by heading toward the restrooms. As you pass them, you should notice a grassy opening continuing straight ahead. Take this until you reach a paved “T”. Take the path at E degrees. Pass a waterway and continue until you reach a triple-trunk near the path on your left. From this point, take F steps along the path. Stop; take a bearing of G degrees, and head in this direction for H steps. The holy landmark has landed under the far end of the forked fallen one. Be careful since there is a crown of thorns embedded in the bark.
Please reseal, replace and rehide everything carefully so this box is available for future visitors. Status reports would be greatly appreciated!
