You haven't lived until you have tasted a TX peach, and a great place to try one is in the TX Hill Country around Stonewall. There are several fruit stands and even a Peach Jamboree the third weekend in June. Also nearby is the Lyndon B. Johnson State Park and Historic Site. Here you can tour the LBJ Ranch, experience a living history farm, and see some of the abundant wildlife of the Hill Country, highlighted by enclosures containing buffalo, longhorn, and white-tailed deer. The park is part of the Pedernales Loop described on the Heart Of Texas Wildlife Trail - East map. So buy some peaches and enjoy them while looking for this microbox.
The park is located 2 miles east of Stonewall, 14 miles west of Johnson City on Hwy 290. Turn north on Park Road 52, then go right at first intersection (left goes to the visitor center). Continue past the living history center and park by the restrooms and picnic area.
From restrooms, head into the woods on the gravel path for about 75 yards. Cross the bridge, turn right and walk about 35 steps. Turn left and walk 12 steps off trail to a medium tree. Continue 3 more steps to a similar tree behind it. The camo microbox is hanging on the back side about 2 feet off the ground. Please replace as described.
