(For information on the hobby of letterboxing, please see my first letterboxing post by clicking here).
Now that it is Spring and the weather is (marginally) improving, we took the new baby on her first letterboxing adventure last weekend. We've been to Harpers Ferry, WV a dozen times, but we had never ventured out of the "Lower Town" area. This series of letterboxes allowed us to see a whole new section of Harpers Ferry. Baby G. was able to splash in a waterfall, spot heron, find cocoons, count turtles and so much more. CraftChix girls: When you're in Harpers Ferry for our May crop, you should venture out for a couple of hours to enjoy these three boxes (AND I FOUND ALL THREE!).
The clues for the "Animals in Harpers Ferry" series can be found here.
Take a look:
If you're a National Parks passport holder, there are 3 stamps at the start of the letterboxing trail and 2 more down in lower town. Baby G. was able to add 3 new stamps to her passport and we bought Baby A. her first passport.
Great fun! If you have young kids or have never been letterboxing before, this would be a great day trip for you. Enjoy!
