Hello From Washington!

Date Placed: June 8, 2010
Letterbox: Traditional
Carver: Lemon Drop of the Gryffindors
Logbook: GreenJello
Planters: GreenJello and Teancum
Location: George Washington Park, Parley's Canyon, Salt Lake, Utah
Status: Active

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

I grew up in Washington State, so this stamp is near and dear to my heart. Some of my favorite memories are carved on this stamp!

Directions: From I-80, take the East Canyon exit (#134). Head north. Turn to the right at the first road (there will be a sign that points you to Mt. Dell Recreational Area). Head past the golf course club house, all the way to the end of the road, which puts you into George Washington Park. Follow the signs to Washington Terrace (go past the first picnic area with a playground), which will take you past some of the golf course. When you reach the end of the road, you know you're in the right place.

From the middle of the bench in front of the swings, sight 50 degrees. It will be almost inline with the left hand side of the swingset support poles.Notice where that 50 degree line intersects with the bushes that are adjacent to the grass. On the road side of those bushes, there are three large rocks in a line. You want the right hand side of the right hand side.

Please be very discreet! This is a busy place. Rehide very well so that park personnel or children won't find it.

Notes: There is another letterbox in this park you might want to find while you're here. :)
