We went down to Austin today. There was a 15% chance of rain… you guessed it. We were the 15% that got wet. Not really wet, just a mist but when the trails are dirt they do get slick.
We started out after the 7 boxes in the “Let’s Have a Picnic” series by AnnaBee. This is what the trail looks like.
This trail is a “leash free” dog area so we had plenty of furry hikers on the trail. Some really beautiful dogs (all of which are going to need baths tonight). The trail is like a lollipop – a single trail leading to a loop on the far end. All of the picnic stamps are before the loop. We found 6 of the 7 boxes.
If you do the whole loop it is a three mile hike. We continued on around the loop and placed a box near the 1 mile marker. It is called “State Bar of Texas” in honor of my daughter who is an attorney in Austin. After placing the box we continued on in search of “The Reason for the Season – Merry Christmas 2010″ by PI Joe.
We were successful in find the Reason for the Season – Merry Christmas 2010 box. We had to keep pausing in our search due to the amount of people hiking by, but we finally had it.
We finished up the hike back to the trailhead. It was a good day. Looked for 8 and found 7. Planted one.
