All told, there are only about 24 caches hidden in downtown Dallas. Caches may come and go but one of my long-term goals is to find all the caches in the area bounded by I35E, I45, I75, I30, and TX366.

Getting to downtown Dallas isn’t difficult. I can take the TRE train for $7 and spend the entire day geocaching. The train is much cheaper than parking.

Then there’s the added benefits. Beyond the obvious health benefits of walking, I see a lot of art and architecture I’d miss driving by in my car.

Did you know that downtown Dallas has a Lady Liberty? I didn’t until I found her. There’s a cache hidden within her. The owner of the shop whose doorway she graces is quite helpful about finding it. He’s used to cachers hunting on his doorstep. He’s also a nice guy to just chat with.

If you ever see downtown Dallas’ Lady Liberty, stop. Chat with the owner. And, possibly, log a cache.

About scribedscribbles

Like most people, I hate filling out profile pages. Who am I? Well, I’m a wife, teacher, daughter, and friend. I’m also an intellectual, an introvert, a night owl, and a bookworm. I work with struggling readers and overachievers, ages 11 to 15. I take care of students, a cat, two rabbits, friends, and my husband. I enjoy geocaching, reading, volksmarching, gardening, crocheting for charity, lecturing, science fiction, learning, and teaching. My favorite colors are blue, green, and purple. I am judgmental, dyslexic, sweet, overweight, graying, short, generous, loving, supportive, and chronically early to meetings. I’m afraid of snakes, putting my head underwater, heights, depths, and failure.
