Behind the Hays Medical Center in Hays, KS, there is a fitness trail. Clues for this letterbox start at the trailhead where the map to the fitness trail is posted.
UPDATE: 7/22/09 The second box has been found and replaced. : )
UPDATE: 6/24/09 The second box has already gone missing. Sorry-will try to figure out what happened.
Make your way along the orange trail with Lucy Pevensie as she discovers the world of Narnia hiding inside a common wardrobe. Continue on into this snowy land past the lampost, meeting Mr Tumnus the Faun. Follow Lucy as she returns to her land, for her sister, Susan and her brothers, Peter and Edmund. Travel this orange trail until you come to the “wardrobe,” the square gray icon from the trail map. Step through the wardrobe together, exploring around it for what you seek.
Follow the Robin from the entrance of the “wardrobe” downhill 55 paces as it leads you to Mr and Mrs Beaver’s “dam.”
Discovering that Edmund has left to betray them to the White Witch, travel up the ravine with the Pevensies and the Beavers to meet the King of the wood and the son of the great Emperor-Beyond-the-Sea, Aslan.
Trying to make it to the Stone Table before the White Witch does, watch the White Witch’s power weaken as “always winter” turns to Christmas. Follow the ravine into a small grove of cedar “Christmas trees.” Seek for the gifts Father Christmas gives there as “the time to use them is perhaps near at hand.” See the silvery shield stamped with the red lion and the sword that Peter receives. Look at what Susan receives: a bow and a quiver full of arrows and an ivory horn. The horn, when blown, will bring help to you wherever you are. Observe Lucy’s small dagger and the little bottle full of cordial “made of the juice of one of the fire-flowers that grow in the mountains of the sun.” This will restore anyone who is hurt.
Continue up the ravine in your journey as Aslan and his army confronts the White Witch and her army, stopping at another “dam.” Follow a course north to the largest “Stone Table” where all seems lost at first. Search the trees around the Stone Table and as you enter into battles, using all of the gifts to help defeat the White Witch and find what you are looking for. Celebrate as Aslan leads his army to victory!
Enjoy peace in the kingdom of Narnia under King Peter the Magnificent, Queen Susan the Gentle, King Edmund the Just, and Queen Lucy the Valiant and then return back through the wardrobe with them to their world to carry Narnia in your hearts and await your next visit to Aslan’s kingdom.
