This box was originally placed by John and Sara of Leapin'
Lizards fame in June, 2003. The ornate box, logbook, and stamp
image was placed to commemorate their first date which took place in
the park. Unfortunately, the box disappeared within two weeks
of its placement. Speculation as to its demise ranges from
curious animals, to delinquent teenagers, to the over-zealous staff
at Wehr and Boerner - the later seeming to be confirmed by Capt.
Jim's report that the local grounds keeper does not approve of
letterboxing. Did this grounds keeper actually pick up the
box? Is it still around or did he throw it out?
Inquiring minds want to know!
Fortunately, the Leapin' Lizards are still together and may replace
the box at some point...

At the road to the Botanical garden, pull up to the sign that reads
"Picnic Areas 5, 6, 7, and 8." Park there on the road between
the red barn and the pond. Go to the small crab tree directly
across from the picnic area sign. Walk along the pond's edge
to the side of the pond geese fly to in the winter. Listen for
the waterfall on your right as you continue travelling along the
pond's edge. Note the path into the woods on your right that
leads uphill. Keep to the pond's edge. Walk past
the tall coniferous family, neighbors to the shorter deciduous
family. Soon you will pass a large oak. Console the
weeping tree on your left and listne for the waterfall on your left.
Travel north from the end of the fencepost to a place fit for a
country dance. From the white door, take a bearing of 320
degrees. Follow that line and take a seat by "Vicky" under the
tall oak. Take the winter route to the cluster of "3" with hanging
arms. From the center of the cluster walk toward the sound of
rushing water. From underneath "Royalty" follow the footpath
into the woods toward the water. Top of the wall. Hollow
log left. In hollow.
