The ABC's in Wapiti, Wyoming were originally taught in a tent. Student chores included hauling water from the nearby Shoshone River and fetching wood for the wood stove. Today Wapiti School is located in a log building surrounded by a bear resistant fence to keep troublesome bruins off the playground. The school provides education for approximately 20 elementary age children.
To find this letterbox, drive west of Cody on Highway 14-16-20 toward Yellowstone National Park. Twenty miles west of Cody don't blink or you'll miss the small community of Wapiti (means elk which abound in the area). Wapiti School is located just past the post office on the north side of the road. Park in the school's lot. Walk around the buck and rail fence on the west side of the lot between the fence and the building (or if you're a kid, climb over the fence!). Walk to the big spruce tree. Face west and take 7 kid size steps to the middle small spruce tree. Look for a group of rocks under the tree. The box is hidden under the rocks and leaves.
