Torbett Springs Letterbox LbNA # 30017 (ARCHIVED)
|Placed Date||Apr 12 2007|
Follow Katy to mile one seventy four,
find a cool spring but look up for more.
Go six paces north from where the spring leaves the cave
two rocks lie together to form a makeshift grave.
They form a small symbol you'll recognize from math,
it's near the cliff perpendicular to the path.
Underneath the backside, guarded in place,
lies an homage to those who painted the face.
