Secret Head Scavenger Hunt
These hidden Heads won't be found with ease
Unmarked amid trails, rocks or trees!
Scavengers with an eagle eye
Spy secret faces concealed nearby
See below for clues, if you please.....
Between the brook and Brook Trail
on a beech tree with bark, dark and pale,
A Tree Guardian watches over
The carvings below her
Thinking they tell quite a tale!
The Tulip Tree, Magnoliaceae,
Stands amidst Mehlquist majestically
Her deep grooved bark
Hides a bit of a lark
A Tree Guardian looks down on thee!
A Dawn Redwood south of Mehlquist,
Near where the paths take a twist,
A Tree Guardian graces
One of our favorite places
Amidst the moss, the lichen and mist.
Yew never thought you might see
A Tree Guardian with such beauty
On a recumbent limb
Under the shade in the dim
Peering down at you thoughtfully.
Northwest of where Red and Yellow Trails meet,
On a tree that’s accomplished a feat.
It’s grown exceptionally tall
And has a Tree Guardian very small
Just waiting for hikers to greet!
From the Wetlands Walk south on Hemlock
There is a massive large rock
Don’t take it for granite
It’s not from another planet
A Rock Guardian admires your walk
Between gardens Arch and Sundial
Near Alice’s fern garden aisle
A majestic Red Oak has a fun little bloke
Peering over the garden, watching folk,
Who is sure to make you smile.
In a sham Cypress tree
An observant person might see
In the heart of a knot
An imp hidden in a nice spot
Mischievously smiling at thee!
