Jump Start for My Letterboxing Trip to Texas

I am leaving tomorrow for a two week trip through Texas. I will be visiting friends and doing some letterboxing. You can read all about the trip by going to Touring Texas, Visiting Friends & Letterboxing.
Today I had to run an errand in Albuquerque, so I decided to get a jump start on my letterboxing. I haven't been letterboxing since October 18, 2007 when I found The Lazy Wheeler and Angelfire when I took a friend of mine to drive the Enchanted Circle. There were four boxes waiting to be found in Albuquerque. The Duck Pond at UNM, The Alburwocky, Christmas Cactus and Palomas Park. I didn't really have a lot of time to spend at each place. The Duck Pond and Palomas Park are qucik drive-bys and didn't take me very long to find. They were both store bought stamps and were okay boxes. Christmas Cactus was in a neighborhood that has a walking trail where there are petroglyphs. I am not sure if this is part of the Petroglyph National Monument or not. I did have a nice walk out there. It was a little cold but it was also nice and sunny. My last stop was to find The Alburwocky. I can't tell you where I was because this is a mystery box. It took me a good two months to finally pinpoint the location. Early on I figured out what type of place I was looking for but was having trouble on the exact spot. Well, needless to say I finally found the box. It felt good to be out letterboxing and I am looking forward to my Texas trip.
