A gorgeous maple-lined alley, bordered by fields on both sides.
Double-checking the clues...
One of the landmarks: a "Whomping Willow"
Well, not really...but I'd like to imagine so.
We crossed an old stone & earth bridge over the wetlands -- another landmark!
A large, granite pinnacle, salvaged from the demolition of Gore Hall
(the former Harvard College Library), stood alone in a silent clearing.
After reading & rereading the final clues, Colby & I took turns
trying to find the box. One of us would search through he leaves,
while the other would stay clear w/ Sean (the mosquitoes
were ferocious in the wet leaves!) Colby finally uncovered the box!
Pulling out the stamp & logbook --
it had been located by quite a few previous questers!
Our contribution to the logbook.
Heading back to the car.
We really enjoyed this experience! The location was so
beautiful & peaceful, and the questing was a fun way to
explore the property. Once we got home, I played around a bit online,
and discovered that theres a second, seperate quest located
at this same property: the Pinnacle Quest, which was planted
by the Trustees of Reservations. So...we're going back really soon!
