We were headed down to do a volksmarch on the Salado Creek Greenway so I check to see if there were any letterboxes. I found that there were two letterboxes there. We knew we’d be too tired after the volksmarch to look for them, so we did the letterboxing first.
Our first search was for “Sunflower”. We had to go around a construction fence to find the trail, but we did it. It was a steep climb but the view from the time was nice and there was a great breeze. We scored a find.
We scrambled back down the hill and headed out to find “Wildflowers”. We almost gave up on this one, but it is there! We scored another find.
After the Volksmarch we headed over to Sunset Memorial Park to find two more boxes. Was very glad we found a Subway to eat lunch first and cool off from our hike.
Our first search was for “Pompeo” very interesting history about him was provided by Lone Star Quilter. He has created many exceptional works of art including the white marble cenotaph in front of the Alamo titled “Spirit of Sacrifice”.
The monument to Pompeo .
We found the box and went looking for our next clue for “Alamo”. It was this open bible.
We successfully found the letterbox and then turned our car toward home.
On the way we stopped in Johnson City where I picked up my “LBJ” letterbox that had been turned into a Geocache. Not sure how this happened as I found nothing near these coordinates on Geochaching.com. How are they finding my box? The log had several names.
The box retrieved we headed up to Marble Falls to replace my box which was damaged. The stamp was broken and the log book was wet. The box itself appeared fine. Not sure how the water got inside to the logbook. Anyway I replaced the whole thing. Hopefully this container will hold up better than the last one.
All the carves were very well done. Mine are just basic carves, these were all lovely, and great finds!
