I've always been fascinated with the names of the moons that Native Americans give the full ones. So I thought I'd plant some moons for you to find in my fave cemetery, Calvary in Milwaukee. Hint: if you haven't tried my Nancy Drew Mysteries box series, check 'em out. They're in this cemetery too!
*************9/14/13: All boxes are back!*********
Box 1: Devil Moon
Come through the main gate and take the first left you can. You'll come to a small intersection, but keep going straight. You'll come to another intersection at Block 9, Section B. Turn right. You'll see the chapel on top of the hill. You'll then come to a fork. Take the left fork. At the end of the fork, turn left. You'll see the Deuster mausoleum on the right. Just past the mausoleum, on the left you'll see two small steps going to the Norton grave. On the left you'll see a large tree with a big opening in it. Inside under a lot of bark, you'll find the Devil Moon.
Box 2: Harvest Moon
From Devil Moon, head east. You'll see some small stairs on the right and a paved path on your left. Turn left onto this path. It will curve around to the west, and then curve to the north, then back toward the west again. You'll come to a "T". Turn left. The path will curve toward the west again, and to an intersection. Go straight through the intersection. On the right you'll pass the grave for Shaunessey. You'll come to another intersection at the Goodman grave. Go staight. You'll come to a "T" at Ball-Cullen grave. Turn left. You'll see a paved drive on the right. Turn onto this drive. Up ahead on the left is the mausoleum for Patrick Cudahy. But right before you get there is a paved drive on the left. Turn left and head south. You'll see the Reilly obelisk on the right and come to an intersection. Go through the intersection and up the hill. You'll pass Block 14, Section B on the right. On the left you'll see the Kalafa grave. Stop here and head west in between the graves and walk 30 steps to a large tree with several trunks between the Franzen graves. At the base of these trunks is the Harvest Moon.
Box 3: Sturgeon Moon:
After stamping Harvest Moon, head south to a "T." Turn right at the "T" and head west. The path will automatically curve to the right. Stop here at the corner and walk diagonally across the grass towards the southwest border of the cemetery. You'll pass some large trees with their roots sticking up. As you get near to the southwest corner of the property, you'll see a couple of dense, thorny bushes. There's a hollow tree stump. Under some bark in the hollow stump is the Sturgeon Moon.
To get back to the main entrance area, cross back on the grass until you get to the asphalt path. Head north on this path. Eventually you'll come to a fork. Take the right fork. On the left you'll see the Jacob Waldeck mausoleum. You'll immediately come to another fork. Take the right fork again. You'll pass Patrick Cudahy on the right. You'll come to a "T". Turn left at the T. Take the first right asphalt path, and you should see your car.
