Treasure Hunt is over! The Treasure was found 5-4-2012!
It has been confirmed that the treasure has been found. Mr. Joel DeVries
found the treasure this week in Cascade Park. We will announce later (on
this blog) the time and date for the formal presentation and press
conference. Mountain Mike wants to thank you for participating, and
invites you back for the next contest. We will also be publishing a
brief bio about Joel, and how he used the clues to locate the treasure.
Afterwards, we will list all the clues, and explain their significance.
Again, congratulations to Joel, and thank you all for playing.
New Treasure Hunt started 9-16-11

Treasure Hunt is over! The Treasure was found!
Congratulations to Doug and Robin Brandt, and their
son Ryley, and Robin and George Thompson--the successful treasure
hunters. Formal awards will be presented on Sunday (12-20) at 2 p.m. at
the site where they found the treasure. That site was on White Pines
Trail, just southwest of where it passes over West River Drive (west of
Northland Drive). You are invited to witness the presentation. (First
Photos). Read Robin Thompson's
fascinating account of the Treasure Hunt, and the
Brandts' equally cool account.
I could not resist putting this image on the home
page. It depicts one of the successful treasure hunters (Ryley) awarding
Robin Thompson her share of the loot. I think Mountain Mike might soon
have some competition.
Would you like to learn how the contest works?
