We went to College Station to do a volksmarching event (urban hike). Since we were in the area we took the opportunity to do some Letterboxing and Waymarking in College Station and Bryan. First we went to visit Lick Creek Park.
As you can see from this sign, the area we needed to access is closed. The boxes may or may not be there when it reopens.
Since I had a box to hide, we went ahead and parked in the equestrian area and hiked down this trail for a ways to leave Bruin behind.
Our next stop was at Veterans Park and Athletic Complex. This visit took longer than expected because I found that the park held eight war memorials in addition to the letterboxes I was seeking. I wanted to see them all.
Veteran’s Memorial Park #1 – Army was found near this memorial. Unfortunately, the lid was broken and the box was full of water. The stamp was gone and there was a toy in the box. A Geocacher has raided this box.
Veteran’s Memorial Park #2- Air Force could not be retrieved as there was lots of people there watching a soccer game.
We found Lest We Forget letterbox in good condition near this historical statue.
Leaving there we stopped by Booneville Cemetery. This cemetery served the town of Boonville, which was the first county seat of Brazos County. It now a ghost town that is inside the Bryan City Limits.
We found this stamp also in good condition. They are building a historical park here with statues of Sam Houston and others. Worth the visit even if you aren’t looking for the letterbox.
