An Allandale scavenger hunt: Aliens, ducks, a giant spider and more!
I’ve lived in the Allandale neighborhood for more than 20 years, but until the past few months had no idea we were home to an alien landing site.
Sure, I knew about the Spider Tree, but had never quite noticed the stump full of little ducks. It turns out that we’re home to all kinds of quirky and interesting distractions, from an orange-and-white cat that serves as mayor of one street to a bicycle that supports a mailbox on another.
Here’s a scavenger hunt to help you discover some new treasures in our neighborhood during the city’s shelter-in-place order. They’re all located in an area bordered by Loop 1 MoPac to the west, Burnet Road to the east, Foster Lane to the north, and Koenig Lane to the south.
