Last found/checked: 10-APR-11

Distance & Time: 5.1 miles; 2.5 - 3 hours if finding all 3 Everest boxes on the loop.

Terrain: Dirt trail through mostly wooded area with some typical moraine inclines & declines.

Starting Point: Picnic area on K.M. Drive, about midway between Hwy 67 and Hwy T.

We created 3 Everest-themed boxes for the Dead of Winter II event in Rockford, IL on 15-JAN-11. The boxes were only temporary plants at the event, so we have now found a permanent home for them. You can look for 1, 2, or all 3 boxes on the trail loop that is the color of Wisconsin’s state flower.

We highly recommend that you first find the Ed Viesturs box, then continue on for this one.

============================================
However if you are just looking for this one, use this info to start:

From the small parking lot, head towards the pit toilets. You’ll soon see two trails to the southwest – although Everest is certainly icy, your journey today is not on the IAT. Take the multi-hued path instead. Continue following the trail loop that is the color of Wisconsin’s state flower until you pass the “Camp” 1 marker.
============================================

You’ll soon cross paths with the trail for the Sherpa’s horses and powered snow vehicles. However you will continue on the noble trail for a long trek, staying left at a fork and leaving the verdant trail behind. Eventually you will come to “Camp” 2 and then pass two benches if you need a rest. Next you may notice a “crevasse” on your right, but luckily the trail doesn’t require you to cross it! If it is winter, you may notice a frozen lake on your left as you descend a hill. After skirting the crevasse, you’ll reach “Camp” 3 and then you can take a well-earned break at the next bench on your right. While you are recuperating, use your compass to take a bearing of 125° and then make a short journey over to find a memento of this section of the trail nestled in the lap of the 7 sisters. Please replace it well so it is hidden from view.

Well, if you made it this far, you might as well continue on to stalk the elusive Yeti!
