Just beneath the surface of the Texas Hill Country lies a layer of honeycombed limestone. Centuries of water moving through the rock into the Edwards Aquifer have formed some spectacular caves and caverns that are well worth a special trip.
Natural Bridge Caverns is one I remember well from my own childhood, mostly because I rode through it on my father’s shoulders and came face-to-face with a Mexican free-tailed bat hanging from the low ceiling. Hard to tell who was more surprised–me, the bat, or my dad as I suddenly started screaming! 😉
