Granbury 10K Year Round

We drove up to Granbury today to walk.  It was 77 when we started walking and 88 when we finished.  Not back for August in Texas.  We registered at the hotel and headed out with a set of directions for a 12K.  The other option offered was a 6K.  I took one of the loops out of the 12K in an attempt to make it a 10K but it took out too much.  When I measured it when I got home it was only an 8K.

After we finished the walk we crossed the street into the park to look for a letterbox.  We found a geocache, but the letterbox was not there.
