Ornaments hidden on Willamette forest trails as part of 2018 Capitol Christmas Tree
SWEET HOME, Ore. - Hundreds of glass ornaments have been hidden along trails on the Willamette National Forest.
People who find the ornaments can claim a prize - and be entered for a chance to win a trip for two to Washington, D.C., next December.
The contest is part of the "Find Your Trail!" Capitol Christmas Tree campaign.
Nominations are being accepted through June 30 for which tree on the Sweet Home Ranger District should be selected.
The tree will be cut in early November. Then it will make a 3,000-mile trip to Washington, D.C., tracing the Oregon Trail in reverse.
That's part of the "Find Your Trail!" theme: Celebrating the 175th anniversary of the Oregon Trail.
And "Find Your Trail!" is what you'll need to do to find one of the ornaments, staring May 24. | TRAILS WITH ORNAMENTS
The Willamette Valley Visitors Association stashed 200 of the keepsakes on non-wilderness trails across the National Forest.
If you find one between now and October 2, you can register online for a prize and to be entered to win the trip.
