Pirate of the Ravine

This box was planted and clue written by Red Cat for the Harvest and Haunts Letterbox Event that took place 10/10/2009 - Thanks Red Cat!

There is a $5/car fee to enter the park unless you have a Washington County Park sticker. This box will be unavailable when there is snow.

The great (but little known) Sven the Merciless and his crew somehow found themselves near a small creek in a ravine in Minnesota. They figured it would be a perfect spot to hide their treasure (after all, who would expect to find pirate gold in Minnesota?). The location of the treasure is unknown, but rumor has it that there's a ghost near a sign that shows the way to 3 and A from 2. Sit on the bench at this T intersection and if you sit very still, you might be able to hear this uneasy spirit of one of the pirates.

*CLINK*

What was that?! Look over your left shoulder and up the hill. I think the noise came from that broken stump covered in moss! After taking about 13 steps from the edge of the bench, there's a small trail that heads to the stump. If you look around the back of the stump, you might find evidence of a ghost under bark and leaves.

This box was planted for the Harvest and Haunts event on 10/10/09.
