Hunting for Koroks
In the past few weeks parents and kids have come upon some delightful, little wooden carvings hidden in the trees while traveling the bike path. These clever sprites are are Koroks from a race in "The Legend of Zelda" series. They are small, wooden people who wear leaf masks over their faces. Their personalities may differ greatly, and are often reflected in their masks. They are spirits and protectors of the forest they live in. The Koroks are very shy, and do not normally appear to humans - so if you find one you're very lucky! The key to finding Koroks is to look for something out of place. Look for things like a rock that's sitting on top of a pillar, or a balloon with a target painted on it, or an unnatural arrangement of stones. If you listen very carefully, you may also hear a wooden wind chime sound when you're close. Enjoy the hunt!
