Medallion Hunt Clues

Clue No. 1 – Published Jan. 10

We’ve hunted nine years for the Fire & Ice treasure,
Venture outdoors and take in nature’s pleasure.
The medallion is hidden where we recreate,
Like fish to the worm, get out and grab the bait.

Clue No. 2 – Published Jan. 17

Where two directions come together,
The prize stays safe in snow or stormy weather.
Green marks the way to our hiding spot.
Before you get there, take a break with your tot.
