"Five Little Ducks"

Five little ducks that I once knew
Fat ones, skinny ones, tall ones too
But the one little duck with the feather in his cap
He led the others with his quack, quack, quack

To find the Redmond Duck, you must first make your way to John Redmond Reservoir just a few miles north of Burlington. Once there, you need to drive to the Riverside West camping area. Turn in, drive past the camp host and follow the road until you get to the shower house and playground to park (if the gate is closed into the camping area for off season, then park at the gate and walk to the playground- a little over a quarter mile). Across the road from the shower house is a group of campsites. Cross over to the one lane, paved road between these sites and follow it to the right. You will come across a white bridge that goes over a stream. Walk across the bridge up to the campsite on the other side with the view of the river. Go to the picnic area and fire pit, turn to face the bank of the stream (not the river). Walk straight ahead to a break in the trees. Scan the bank (the opposite direction from the bridge) for the largest tree you can see. The Redmond Duck is hiding underneath a large rock behind this giant tree. Beware of critters, and use a stick to check the opening first before trying to remove the box.

This is our first attempt at placing a letterbox so let us know how your search went or if the box needs repair. Happy hunting!
