Letterboxing In Washington DC and Beyond

Letter-boxing, that is how the stamp carving started. I just love this hobby for so many reasons. I love that we often see places we never would have seen had it not been for fellow letterboxers planting wonderful boxes in those special places. I also love that I always get a little memento to bring home with me to remind me where I have been. Here are a few pics of our most recent letterboxing adventures, we made some great finds with very memorable stamps hidden inside!!

DC Zoo: Black Crowned Night Heronplanted by Melissa and Ben

This is one of those places we would not have seen had it not been for letterboxing. It was at a beautiful park called Sandy Bottom. We spent a little time there walking around and taking pictures of a beautiful lake.

  1. Thank you for the pic of your family finding Three Sails! We planted another while visiting that area-in Colonial Williamsburg and had a blast doing it! Happy hunting!
