Oh, The Yellow Roads of Texas
Is where I want to be,
I love those yellow flowers
As far as I can see…

In my little pink convertible,
I thank you, Lady Bird,
For sewing seeds of sunshine,
At least that’s what I heard…

Buttercups and Goldenrod,
And Black-eyed Susan, too!
Sunflowers and Daisies
Always make me think of you!

Directions:
From Fredericksburg, go south on Highway 16 for 3 miles to Lady Bird Johnson Municipal park on your right. Drive by the RV area, and through the gate. Immediately on your left, you will see a trailhead information sign. Turn in and park by the sign and read about the trail. To the left is a butterfly viewing area and a bird blind. Feel free to visit both.

To the box:
From the information board, follow the trail loop to the left, past the butterfly viewing area and the birdwatching blind. Follow the trail as it goes downhill with a wire fence on the left. Soon, you'll see a small wooden footbridge in front of you, and a post to the right with a cable attached to it. At the post, turn around and walk 20 steps back up the trail the way you came. To the right, next to the fence, you'll see a large ashe-juniper tree. At its base on the left you'll see some rocks under the lower branches. Under a large white flat rock, you'll find the box. Pay attention to how the rock is place and replace it as you found it in order to protect the box.
