The Lowell Riddler is hiding medallions in and near the City of Lowell and offering area residents the chance to win a prize of local gift cards. Look for a new clue or riddle each Saturday!
Here’s what the winner said about finding the medallion:
I found the medallion hanging off a picket on the south side of the footbridge by FROM. The only thing that rises during stormy weather is the water level, and what goes o’er water is a bridge, which is reinforced by “bring[ing] people together”. The road the bridge is on stretches from Lowell to Flint (dark Chert) (i.e. M21). “Treasure” was a tough one until I realized that FROM has its cool Treasures Gift Shop on M21. Bingo. There’s a small pond next to FROM with a footbridge paralleling M21. And there it was, hanging off a picket on the south side of the footbridge.
Here’s what else The Lowell Riddler sent us when announcing the winner and the answers behind the riddle:
Mark Weaver from Lowell!
