LOCATION: Luzerne County, PA
Start where Kitchen Creek passes under 118, 15.9 miles
west of its start in the Big D, at a footbridge north
of the road. Head northeast along the creek 142 paces
to where you should take a geography lesson.
From there, continue along the brook, aquainting yourself
with the Renoldses, and perhaps meeting Mr. Wright on your
hike to where waters meet. Thence head towards the First
State, and keep going until you dead-end into a very small
shallow cave where you cannot hear yourself think.
From there, find the trail up and around with a 196 degree
bearing, and cruise up and around to the top of that
noisemaker, where a flat rock on the waters edge marks a
pleasant spot to take a rest.
Then, continue up river 300 paces to a second fall, atop
which is another nice rock to rest on. While resting, sight
a tree up the hill at 221 degrees; go 70 paces towards that
tree, where you will encounter the base of the remains of a
big dead downed tree (BDDT).
Thence, 22 paces at 260 degrees to a hemlock on the hillside,
thence 14 paces at 130 degrees to a small stump upon a cluster
of loose, mossy rocks. A flat rock shaped like South Africa
conceals a cubbyhole.
