So letterboxing is allowed in MN state Parks? Or am I not reading this correctly? I also came across a letter box that is "buried"? Is this part of gc.com or do they have separate rules?

Letterboxing is not a part of geocaching.com. GC has created a category of geocache called a letterbox hybrid, but they are essentially the same activity. I would consider a letterbox the same as a geocache - when applying the park rules. Specifically, there is a prohibition against geocaching. The omission of a prohibition against letterboxing does not make it allowable. They are literally the same activity with a different method of finding the cache.

That is what I thought- hmmmm- makes me wonder if letterboxes will continue to be allowed- or do the state parks people know about letterboxes- and are they allowing them or is the letterbox I found in a state park illegal? or legal?
