There are two locations in Door County, WI where the 45th parallel (the midpoint between the equator and the north pole) is marked by a geological marker - one on the east side along Hwy 57 and another on the west side along Hwy 42.  This box was placed to add another letterbox to the many 45th parallel letterboxes started by Matt the Rat.  Visit Matt's site for more information about the 45th parallel and this spot in particular.


Drive to the wayside with the geographical marker a few miles south of Baileys Harbor, WI.  From the rock monument, climb the rock wall where others have to the south.  At the top, turn right and walk 5 paces along the edge.  Look deeply in the hole in the base of the tree to your left.  you will need to remove a bunch of debris.  Please re-hide well, fitting the box snugly into the hole and covering it with the debris, but make sure it looks natural.
