Green Speed is a 7 year old boy who has recently discovered a love for letterboxing. This is the first box he has hidden, with the help of his parents and brother, Blue Ice, and he made the journal with his own two hands. We are excited to contribute to hidden boxes in Farmington and hope that you will enjoy this little hunt. He would love to hear your feedback!

Inside the city limits of Farmington, go to Vietnam Veteran's Park on Butler Ave. You get there by driving south on Butler off of Pinion Hills Blvd, or by driving north on Butler past 30th St. The Park sits on the west side of the road. Pull in and park in the parking area by the road. There are 3 walking trails that lead up the hill to the park. Take the trail in the center just north of the "Vietnam Veteran's Park". Beginning at the fence, walk 40 normal (adult) steps straight to the brick landscaped wall. On the top of the wall you will find the only brick that is cracked in half. "The Lucky Box" is waiting for you under this brick.

Please be very discreet because it is hidden in a very open place. Hidding it was quite tricky. When rehiding please include the bark and brush over the box to keep it hidden. After completing your search take time to go to the top of the park and enjoy the beautiful memorial that has been put in place to honor our Veterans and all they have done for us!
