Great TX Balloon Race

DIRECTIONS: From the intersection of W. Marshall and N. Spur 63 turn west and go about .02 miles. You will see a sign on your right that reads: Paul G. Boorman Trail. Turn right and park in parking lot. This is a fairly new trail that will be expanded in the future. I felt safe there, but you may not want to go alone.

To the box: Follow trail around to Princeton Ave. (another trail) . Turn right and walk to the bridge. Turn around BEFORE crossing the bridge and walk back 11 steps and look right. At the top of the embankment is a small tree. Climb the bank and look behind the other tree directly behind the first tree. You will find your treasure behind the second tree.

Please re-hide well and let me know about the status of the box.
