1st Ascension Island Scouts
Our Island is fantastic for walking and exploring. We have 44 volcanoes and at many of their tops we have a "Letterbox". In total there are 20 "Letterboxes" on the Island at many of the viewpoints. The original idea of a "Letterbox" on an island was for the old sailing ships on long outward journeys to leave mail for those returning home. For us they are just a way of exploring all the Island - each letterbox has a rubber ink stamp to mark your walking book with.

At the top of Green Mountain there is a Letterbox at the Dew Pond. At a height of 2817 feet, this is the top of the Island, it`s covered in 30 feet high bamboos and is very muddy as you can see from us after our mudfight!
