A heavy, silver-white metallic element, liquid at room temperature, and usually used in combination with sulfur. Alchemists believed Mercury transcended solid and liquid, heaven and earth, and life and death.

Just north of mm168 on US550, turn east on cr2390 and immediately pull into the open area to the north. Follow the dirt road north alongside US550 to an old truss bridge. There are concrete posts at the entrance to the bridge. The letterbox is on the west side of the west post under a chunk of concrete.
