This pink box was found in a stump in Lake Carlos State Park during our visit to a Minnesota State Park during Memorial Weekend. This box has note cards with comments from visitors who happened to find the box. The pink box has two pens and many note cards. We read a note from Old Bertha who is watching over the woods on this remote trail in the State park. We wrote a note in and left it in the box. This was a cool idea. Thank you to the person who hid this box in a Minnesota State Park.
