While we all weather our current national crisis, some aspects of our customer and subscription services may not be up to our usual standards. We apologize in advance for any delays you may encounter in receiving your subscription, locating newsstand copies of our magazine, ordering back issues or making changes to your account. Editorial staff will assist you as quickly as possible while we telework from various locations throughout the state.

Our Great Outdoor Scavenger Hunt debuted in 2019 with these starting-gun words: "From the bayous to the prairie, the Pineywoods to Palo Duro, Big Bend to the World Birding Center, our first-ever statewide scavenger hunt starts NOW."  

GOSH is a classic scavenger hunt with a twist: you travel to a location on our list, snap a selfie and add our hashtag #GOSH2021. Complete one entry, one section or the entire list.

GOSH players will be the stars of our blog and social media accounts all summer long. Will we see you posing outside on of San Antonio's missions or checking out the Lower Ghost Camp at San Angelo State Park? We can't wait to share your smiling faces in front of some of the best places in the state.
