Find the Steamboat Yule Log: Here’s Clue No. 5

The 3-foot-long, 50-pound log will be hidden somewhere in Steamboat Springs.

The 2019 Yule Log Hunt has begun, and the Steamboat Pilot & Today will be posting a clue a day, beginning Tuesday, Dec. 10, until the log is found. The hunt begins at the 2018 hiding spot: Bud Werner Memorial Library, 1289 Lincoln Ave.

Clue No. 1

Every 15, a grand display.
Rhythmic sound, now gone away.
Pages of history, volumes of lore.
Close to this spot, the prize was in store.

Clue No. 2

In 1908, the path was laid.
Growth and prosperity, the deal was made.
Take a picture, paint or draw.
A blissful time is had by all.

Clue No. 3

Mesa mountains are the source.
From the south, on the course.
Once a bear, still a root.
Find your way by bike or foot.

Clue No. 4

Raise your spirits, light your fire.
Wet your whistle, watch the mire.
Just before H, it stands tall.
1930s come one come all.

Clue No. 5

The oldest structure on the street.
Clark’s milled lumber can’t be beat.
Rent horse, take a ride.
Sell your gear, tan your hide.
