Haiku Challenge!

Treasure Trails Haiku Challenge
Get creative with Treasure Trails!

Can YOU sum up your Treasure Trails experience in just 17 syllables?

We tasked Trailers over on our Facebook page to do just that – a Treasure Trails Haiku!

A Haiku is a poem with 3 lines, 5 syllables in first line, 7 in the second and 5 in the third.

Here’s what they came up with:

Look all about you.
Clues are hidden in plain sight.
Still need help? Just text!
