One of Texas' most scenic drives, officially RR 32, the "Devil's Backbone" is a winding, razor-backed ridge overlooking Hill Country vistas. It extends west from RR 12 just south of Wimberley some 24 miles through Fischer to near Blanco. At its highest point is a little roadside picnic area with a great view of El Rancho Cima Boy Scout Camp, and a nice place to stamp into this microbox. Nearby is an old watering hole called the Devil's Backbone Tavern, which bills itself as an original Texas Honky-Tonk.
From San Marcos, take RR 12 west for 10 miles to RR 32. Continue west on RR 32 for another 5 miles to the Devil's Backbone overlook picnic area on the right. The town of Fischer is just a few miles away.
Admire the view from the overlook, then turn left and follow the chain fence south to its end near RR 32. A barbed wire fence is connected to the chain fence behind a bush, and the camo microbox is wedged in the wire about a foot off the ground. Please be discreet and replace as described.
