BRQ #2: Cornucopia Peak

LOCATION:  Wallowa-Whitman National Forest, Baker County, OR

CHALLENGE:  1 star

DATE/NUMBER:  21-Sep-1999/19

MAP:  This box is somewhere along the Backroads Quest Drive.

A fifth of a mile south of the sign
That was put in place to mark the town line
On 294 line the tall pine with Cornucopia's left peak
And perhaps the mountain will reveal what you seek
Thence its 28 paces at 50 degrees
To the large rock in the place of the trees
Another 103 degrees and 35 paces
Locates one of the mapsurfer's secret places --
A boulder, perhaps mossy on top
Behind which you'll find a concealing rock
