"One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish" was written by Dr. Seuss in 1960, and is a book filled with tongue twisting rhymes, starting out with the title. This Blue Fish can be found in Crook Park, home of the San Marcos Nature Center, which has a variety of indoor animal exhibits and an outdoor Wildscape of native plants and animals. This is a blue, Blue Fish because he is lonely, so come visit!
From exit 205 of I35 in San Marcos go south on the access road to 430 Riverside Drive, next to Tourist Info Center, and park at the San Marcos Nature Center in Crook Park.
Go into the garden behind the Nature Center and follow the main trail as it goes southwest, then bends northwest. At lightpost CR76 on your left, walk southwest, going between two trees, for 20 steps to a large tree with a fork and hollow area 5 feet high. The microbox is within under rocks and dirt. Please replace as described. You can continue on the trail for a nice hike to Ramon Lucio Park.
