I moved to Jacksonville in the winter of 2011-2012. The first place I visited, even before our new home, was Loveís Lookout. Itís my favorite place in Jacksonville. This box is in honor of my new start in life.
From Hwy 69 and Hwy 79, go North on Hwy 69 to Loveís Lookout. Pull into the scenic rest area, enjoy the view, etc. To find my ďboxĒ, go to the northernmost set of picnic tables (itís a pavilion with three tables and a grill) and sit down on north side of middle table. Turn towards woods and scenic view. Just to the left of the grill is a big sweet gum tree on the far side of rock wall. Itís actually a tree that splits about 5-6 feet from the ground, but it isnít noticeable from that angle. On the south side of that tree is a bush/tree that is about 4 feet tall. My letterbox is hanging in that bush/tree on south side.
The best way to that bush/tree is to take the 3-step gate in the rock wall to the north of the pavilion and walk around to the right to that bush... youíll see the V in the sweet gum much clearer. Please hang back on its hook and hide well.
