Update to this Quest

This quest originally appeared in Valley Quest II:75 More Treasure Hunts. It was revised and included in Best of Valley Quest. If you are using Valley Quest II you will need these clue updates. #6. The number to the right was our zip code. Please WRITE the third number here: #14. The ski trail sign is gone, but there is a Quester’s Trail sign posted to show you the way! If you are using the Best of the Valley Quest and older editions, in clue #3 the Big Wooden sign has been moved up the hill. Continue the quest and place clue #3 after #6. (use the original clue numbers for the letters) #11-the blaze is hard to see right at the intersection due to tree cover (go left to find it) #12- depending on the time of year, there may or may not be fences here due to pasture rotation.
