The title of this letterbox was inspired by a friend's
story of a great hiking trail he often walked on. It took me awhile
to discover he had actually been saying "Mt. Ives" and not "Mound
Eyes". You will not be on the Mt. Ives trail on this quest, but in
the same general area. CLUES: Go to the Ireland Picnic Area
playground. Starting at the westernmost leg of the (metal-framed)
swingset,go 17 paces at a heading of 262 degrees (1 pace=2 steps).You
should find yourself standing beside a cedar tree. From here,go 11
paces at 225 degrees. Stop. From this point you will be able to see a
bright yellow, man-made object at a heading of 260 degrees. Go to
that object. From the object, if you take 14 paces at 217 degrees,
you can find the Mound Eyes letterbox hidden under a fallen log.
