Letterboxing at Wolfe park

I took my daughter letterboxing at Wolfe Park in Monroe this afternoon, and we found all 8 boxes for the "Hey Jude" series (see for clues and general info about letterboxing). Many of the boxes were a bit tricky and also full of water, but all the hand-carved stamps were good and pertained to Beatles songs. We capped off our outing with ice cream from the snack bar at Great Hollow Lake.

En route, we saw plenty of spring wildflowers, including red trillium, spring beauties (photo), and woodland anemones. And as we sat on one of the many benches along our hike we also got a good look at a pair of spotted sandpipers hunting along the shores of the stream that flows out of the lake. See photos.
