Fountain Rock Letterboxes
Board: State: Virginia
Aug 24, 2017 9:05pm
Fountain Rock Park and Nature Center in Walkersville, MD has had a rotating series of letterboxes for awhile now. Due to construction in the park as well as missing boxes they were pulled earlier this year.
In honor of Fountain Rock Park's 30th Birthday all four series will be out in the park at the same time. Starting 25 August 2017 they will remain out through Labor Day weekend and possibly September. They will then be pulled and retired. This is your chance to get any missing series or to collect them all in one fell swoop.
There are plans to put letterboxes out again in the park once the construction dust has settled.
Hope to see you at the park!
I'm ba-aaa-aack! :)

Hello everyone, I'm back from a letterboxing hiatus. I am back and checking on and maintaining my boxes, answering my AQmessages and such. Thank you to everyone who has helped when they noticed my boxes needed assistance. Also, thank you to the letterboxers out there that keep the letterboxing experience positive and fun. Hope to see you guys around!

Welcome back! Hope you are well. My letterboxing seasons come and go also. Just jump back in at your own pace. The Cold Case event you and Book Hoarder did awhile back is still at the top of one of my favorites.
Happy Boxing!

I am looking at doing an event in December on the 16th in Fairfax-ish area. I'm trying to gauge interest. Should I do an event in December, or wait until February (even though the weather might be more horrible then)?

There's a strong chance I have to work, but if I don't have to, I would be interested! I wouldn't know until early December for sure though :(

Weather wise I'd prefer December rather than February!

We're interested but you know us.. really depends on whats going on pretty much the few days before the event date. Sorry but that's just the way it is.. So December or February either one. But I don't like snow or cold weather!!!!

Hello! I will be on a family vacation in Virginia Beach next week. We are super excited to visit this lovely state. Are there any can't miss letterboxes in the area? I've got several marked to try for, not sure I can make them all...you have some prolific planters in your area. :)

Thanks,
Idhunna

Agree with Frankie and Benjy. The library boxes are a must find. They are awesome. If you need to get off the beach on a rainy day they are a great choice. Enjoy your vacation.

This sounds a lot like the poison hemlock spreading in Franklin County, PA! It’s supposed to look a bit like Queen Anne’s Lace.

It's a problem when the Giant Hogweed isn't...

They are not created 7 feet tall... be careful when dealing with plants that are slightly taller than or shorter than a fully developed cow parsnip... they are very similar, might be very closely related... the cow parsnip isn't a problem... but a smaller version of the Giant Hogweed is still toxic.

I would call the local environmental conservation department and tell them. Or maybe the EPA.

Bubble Cakes for awesome cupcakes. Make sure you see the Star at night and the daytime. There’s a few good coffee shops around. I know I’ve gotten letterboxes there, but a lot have retired. Train museum is really nice and the blue ridge parkway is close by. Enjoy you visit!
