This letterbox can be found at the Edith Moore Sanctuary, which is part of the Houston Audubon Society.
From I10, go south on Sam Houston Pkwy (Beltway 8) Frontage Road for about 1 mile, then turn right (west) on Memorial Drive. Go about 1/2 mile and turn left on Wilchester Blvd. Go about 1/10 mile and turn left into the Edith Moore Sanctuary and park by the cabin.
To Find the Box:
Walk on the porch around the cabin and find the trail. Cross over the big bridge that spans Rummel Creek. Go right after crossing the bridge until you come to the intersection of McCarver and Creekside trails. Take the Creekside and cross two wooden bridges. You’ll come to a clearing of sorts where new trees have been planted on the slope down to the creek. Keep going and cross the new wooden walkway/overlook. Stop and look at the creek if you must. Then, continue on to a smaller footbridge. There, you’ll see a bench, and, when you sit, you can see the #12 marker next to the bridge. Look due north (that’s over your left shoulder if you left your compass in the car). You’ll see a splintered stump about 4 1/2 ft. tall back in the woods. The Tiny Toy Box is hanging on this stump. Well, not the tiny toy box, but the letterbox entitled The Tiny Toy Box, which is really a camo-micro box. It’s too small to get toys in. Unless they’re really tiny toys. Or really tiny rubber stamps that look like tiny toys.
