Contest #782: the Smiley Face near Grand Ronde, Oregon, US

In the fall/autumn, the Smiley Face becomes visible along Oregon Highway 22 between Willamina and Grand Ronde, after being hidden most of the year by the colour of the trees. Planted with deliberate care back in 2011, the Hampton Lumber Company designed it so the face was larch trees with the eyes and mouth fir. When the latches change colour in October, the Smiley Face appears.

It’s not often that only four players find a location but it just shows that we have to hide the trees in a forest to make it hard.
