That was my first thought, too.

Could this possibly refer to Fort Snelling even though it is across the river? Hmmm Fort Snelling was never attacked so life there would have been pretty slow.

It should have been clue two lol!

On the one hand this clue could be talking about a shady place with BBQ grills and picnic tables. A place to take cover could mean a picnic shelter. But two things bother me in this clue. One is a place to recover. What does that mean? That's not something you would normally do in a park. Maybe if you had been playing something you might need to recover, but is there something special there that helps you with that? Or does it mean there is a hospital or some such thing nearby?

The other thing that bothers me is when it says life *was* slow as molasses. That suggests that it isn't now, and some aspect of this place is about its past.

Clue #6

Here is the new clue:

Clue #6
Escape the heat, cook and eat
At this playland far from the masses.
A place to recover or even take cover –
Life here was slow as molasses.

And here are the previous clues:

Clue #5

Things looked rosy, a pocketful of posey.
We remember it all too well.
We were happy back then but beyond our ken:
It soon would all go to hell.

 

Clue #4

We’re moving ahead, no oncoming dread.

Our future’s in our hands.

This new term is about what’s firm

Let’s avoid the shifting sands.

 

Clue #3

No time, old sport, to play and cavort.

Pursue the grail with your schemes!

Out at night? Then follow the light

To cross the way to your dreams.

 

Clue #2

Stay away from links and risky hijinks.

Disturb not ground, tree or trail.

Don’t wait for last clue to know what to do;

This year you’ll figure or fail.

 

Clue #1

Be it turmoil endemic or global pandemic

It’s been a tough year for us all.

So rather than punt, we renewed this year’s hunt:

Join us, it’ll be a ball!

 

Don’t be odd, stay in your pod.

Keep six feet away from strangers.

Wear a mask when on your task

To keep all safe from dangers.

If it's really at Hidden Falls where I think it is, the bathroom situation will be much worse.

Clue 5: 10 on Como again for Secretrose. I was there today. Warning...Zoo only allows people in with reservations so we are stuck with two port-a-potties in front of building. 


Re: Clue #5

I was actually at Como today. There were a few hunters around and fits a lot of clues.

Just read about the ultimate end of the McKenty family (namer and promoter of Lake Como), clue 5 seems to fit that tragic family... if you still think it’s at como.

I’m leaning towards Hanson Park in New Brighton. Any thoughts on that?

Does anyone else find the spelling of Posey to be relevant? It's not spelled like the flower from the nursery rhyme, instead this spelling is defined as:

(of a person or their behavior) affected and attempting to impress others; pretentious.
