Hello From Oklahoma!

Date Placed: June 9, 2010
Letterbox: Traditional

Logbook: GreenJello 
Planter: GreenJello
Location: Hidden Valley Park, 11700 South Wasatch Boulevard, Sandy, Salt Lake, Utah

This is part of the "Hello From The United States!" series of boxes.

The beautiful Scissor-Tailed Flycatcher is the state bird of Oklahoma. To find one of these lovely birds in Utah, head over to Hidden Valley Park.

Directions: From the east end of the parking lot, take the paved path up the hill. At the second Bonneville Shoreline Trail sign, head up the dirt path in the direction the sign leads you. Soon you will see a bench on the left, off the path and shaded by trees. Sitting on the bench, look behind and to your left. There is a bird nested in the crook of the tree trunks. Please note how the box is hidden so you can rehide it the same. We don't want it out in the open come winter!
