      New letterbox: Graceful Nature
      Amherst, Hillsborough, NH
      Placed by: Team Gracie
      Clues:
      I am 8 years old and this letterbox is my very first. I started this as a project for my Brownie Girl Scout troop, after I learned about letter boxing from my cousins in Connecticut. Yes, my name is Grace, and any boxes I create will somehow have my name within it.

      Super easy trail!
      Distance: 0.5 miles

      Directions: Route 101 West (heading from Bedford), or East (heading from Milford/Keene)to exit for route 122 in Amherst. From Bedford, turn right off the exit. From Milford/Keene, turn left off the exit. Drive just 0.6 miles to traffic light, turn right onto Boston Post Road. Continue straight through 4-way stop sign. Pass Mike's Garage on left and take next left onto Foundry Street. After 9th house on right, you'll come to a cemetary. Take the 2nd entrance (across from Davis Lane)into the cemetary. Follow dirt road to back of cemetary and take a right. Walk until you see a large headstone on left marked "Hartshorn." There are two bushes on either side of the headstone. You will find the box under the left bush.

        New letterbox: great lot 34
        peterborough, Hillsborough, NH
        Placed by: uneksia
        Clues:
        settlers great lot 34 is the original peterborough. it is a land rich in history of the area. do pick up a brochure in the mailbox and read about it. after all, one of the bounties of letterboxing is to discover interesting places.

        the land is located on old town farm road which is located off of old jaffery road. after turning on old jaffery road look for a dirt turn just before a Y, this will be old town farm road. the big field is where you are going. after you park head for the mailbox to pick up that brochure. the following stamps have nothing to do with the farms. they just happen to be of my favorite plays or movies.

        follow the path across the fields and into the woods. keep going until you see "the rock" on your left. make yourself even with the point of this rock then turn to the right. you will now be facing a big pine. look right. see the pine scarred at the bottom? behind this scarred pine is another pine. you might want to look behind it.

        continue up the trail. cross through the stone wall. on the right is a pine against the wall. count 4 stones to the left. easy right?

        little shop of horrors - somewhere that's green
        continue on down the trail till you see the cellar hole on your right. there is a stone wall in front of you. go through it and look for the sapling slightly to the left. look at the bottom.

        go back the way you came. did you notice on your way up a small unmarked trail on your right. now it is going to be on your left and you are going to stop there and look back at the way you came. if you look way up to your left you will see a tree that looks like a duck. nothing to do with the clues, i just thought it was interesting. anyway, now that you are facing that way go back 13 paces to the 4 sister tree on your left. look behind it.

        now turn around again and head back to where you parked.
