SEVEN LbNA # 16814
|Placed Date||Jul 25 2005|
On July 24, 2005, Lance Armstrong made history (again!) as the first person to win seven consecutive Tour de France titles. After pedaling 2,255 miles during the three week tour, Lance rode down the Champs-Elysees in Paris one last time while millions of fans watched in awe. My first letterbox is dedicated to Lance and his amazing achievement.
E.R. and Ann Taylor Park is located on Reed Road. Take 288 South to the Reed Road exit ( you will pass the 610 loop). Turn right on Reed Road. The park is on the left side of the street. If you get to Almeda, you have gone too far. There are no facilities or water but there is a covered picnic pavillion.
Bring lots of insect repellent!
Drive through the entrance gate until you reach the end of the road. Park in front of the picnic pavillion. There is a historical marker to the left of the pavillion. From this marker, walk 116 steps to the first trail intersection on your right. You will see a sign for a bird blind. Keep going straight for 74 more steps to a bench on your left. To your right is another trail intersection that will take you to the cemetery where Ann Taylor is buried. Keep going straight. You will pass another bench on your left and then a trail to a bird blind on your left. The main trail will start to bend towards the West and you will come to a Y in the trail. Head right on the trail another 27 steps until you come to a large tree on your right. The letterbox is hiding behind the tree at the base covered in the usual stuff.
As always, please rehide well and send an email to let me know how Seven is doing!
