The Winter weather advisory on Friday kept us close to home. We didn’t go down to San Antonio as we’d planned to do at the Del Webb Event. http://walkingclubs.wordpress.com/2014/02/02/del-webb-hill-country-retreat10k/
So we walked the Cottonbelt Trail in Waco instead. We started at the East near the Waco landfill.
I checked on the first of my two letterboxes along the trail. The Cottonbelt caboose stamps is gone.
We continued on to the bridge over the Bosque River.
The trail curved and goes under Lorena Road.
We check on the second letterbox and the Cottonbelt Engine is still there waiting for an adventurous soul to come find it. We did the loop at the West end and headed back to our cars. Here is another view of the walkway going down under the bridge.
After the walk DH and I headed over to the Waco Dam hike/bike trail. I had a stamp to hide and we checked out the South end of the trail just off Lakeshore Drive.
No place to hide a stamp here. Homes close on both sides and they have a good view of the trail. So we continued on over to the North end of the trail where Wild and Crazy Guy! letterbox was hidden. Directions reference the trail information board but as you can see the board has been vandalized.
We went in search of the boulder referenced and DH posed for a picture next to it so we had time for the other walkers to get out of site.
Once the area was clear I looked under the boulder but was disappointed to find only empty space. The stamp was gone.
So I took my stamp and wandered along the hike/bike trail. We turned out to go to this overlook that says “No Trespassing” beyond this point. We returned back to the paved trail.
Continuing on I found a hiding spot and left my stamp. Hopefully it will last a while. From there we headed over to McLennan Community College and the Art Center of Waco stamp. We followed the trail in search of Madonna. This is not it. LOL
This is Madonna.
From her we were told to descend the steps to find Eve. Which we did.
From the steps we were supposed to find the stamp hidden behind a loose stone at the base of this wall. Unfortunately we didn’t find a loose one. Did the wall shift and make the stone fit tightly? Unable to know for sure, so we had another “Not Found”
