This box is hidden on the nature trail at Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park outside of Fredericksburg, Texas. Lady Bird was known for her love of wildflowers and during her husband's term as President of the United States was very active in preserving and increasing the wildflowers in the state of Texas. Start at the corner of Main Street and Adams in downtown Fredericksburg. Go south on Adams for 3.4 miles. Turn right into Lady Bird Johnson Municipal Park and drive .4 miles to the park headquarters on your right. Pass through the stone fence and turn left at the Nature Trail sign and park. Walk to the trail map. Read the map and familiarize yourself with the identification of poison ivy which can be found on the trail.
There are many wild things on this nature trail. Wild birds, wild flowers and wild animals, so that is why we call this letterbox, "Where the Wild Things Are."
There are two ways to find the letterbox. You can go the easy way or enjoy yourself on the nature trail. The easy way is going up to the map, turning around and going down to a concrete path between two picnic areas and crossing the water. This is the half way point of the nature walk. The other way is to enjoy yourself by doing the whole nature walk and crossing the water at the halfway point.
After crossing the water, turn left at the Y. Follow along the trail until you come to a bench that says "Trudy Vars Harris". Keep walking until you come to marker "3". Continue along the path until you come to a bunch of prickly pears. Look along the fence and you should find some loops of barbed wires. This is where you will find the letter box. BE CAREFUL OF THE BARBED WIRE!
