Colton-Pierrepont letterboxing
Monday, May 16, 2011 - 6:28 am

The Colton-Pierrepont Parent-Teacher-Student Association and Catamount Lodge & Forest recently hosted a fun letterboxing event to help connect children, parents, teachers, and others in the community with nature. Participants were introduced to letterboxing -- an outdoor "treasure hunt" that combines hiking, orienteering, adventure, mystery and the thrill of discovery -- by local letterboxers having the trailnames of Wyvern, Lostgirl, and The Cat of Colton. Players found hidden treasures on Catamount trails in South Colton using clues which also are available online at the Atlas Quest website. Photo by Ruth McWilliams
