Sunshine On My Shoulders

Sunshine On My Shoulders
by John Denver

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high

If I had a day that I could give you
I'd give to you the day just like today
If I had a song that I could sing for you
I'd sing a song to make you feel this way

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost always makes me high

If I had a tale that I could tell you
I'd tell a tale sure to make you smile
If I had a wish that I could wish for you
I'd make a wish for sunshine for all the while

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy
Sunshine in my eyes can make me cry
Sunshine on the water looks so lovely
Sunshine almost all the time makes me high

John Denver is one of my favorite singers! I love this song and thought I would lay a box, in his memory, where the sunrise is so pretty. Hope you get to hunt this one in the morning so you can enjoy the sunrise too!
Thanks for letterboxing.

CLUE: Proceed to Caprock Canyon State Park, Quitaque Texas. When inside the park you will want to pay your entry fee and get a trails map at the headquarters. Go to the north end of Eagle Point Trail. From the trail head see marker(J5). Walk down this trail til you come to the natural bridge. There will be a wooden bench on the left side of the trail.
Sit and rest then stand up in front of the bench facing the trail. Look to your left and notice the large rock or boulder. Now look farther to your left and notice the larger juniper (evergreen) bush. Walk in between these two items and notice a smaller juniper tree just ahead of you a little to your left again.
Go to that bush and look on the ground among the trunk limbs. The box is hidden there in a camo tub.
Be careful of critters here and rehide well!! Enjoy the rest of the trail!!
