Morel Heaven - Mystery Letterbox
Greene County, Ohio
Morels in April are a little taste of heaven. This letterbox is placed
right in the midst of one of the best morel patches I have found. A morel
hunter will never just tell you where his favorite patch can be found. So
you will need to do a little work to find this one, and even then you will only
be close (to the morels).
The starting point for this hunt is where I have worked as a judge with the West
District Science Day for the last several years. It is also the building
where the Raiders play their basketball games. Begin where you would
purchase your admission to a ball game. You
can park nearby (when there is not an event) and begin your morel hunt.
Put your back to the building and pass the flagpoles on your right. Cross
the road and follow the asphalt path along the edge of the woods as you head
generally west. Opposite the golden arches turn north into the grassy
clearing. At the head of the field, past a dam, you will find a sign
denoting the woods a biology preserve. Taking a vector of 40 degrees,
follow the path along the creek for 2 centuries. Arriving at a three
trunked tree, take a course of 80 degrees for another quarter century until you
arrive at another…
The morels are all about if it is the season. The letterbox is there
regardless. For more morels continue to walk about the preserve.
Before you set out read the waiver of
responsibility and disclaimer.
