Natural Bridge Caverns

Back in November I took a tour with my geology classmates to Austin. We visited Natural Bridge Caverns and it was quite a sight to see.

Natural Bridge Caverns is located betwen San Antonio and New Braunfels 8 miles west of I-35 at exit #175.

The cave was discovered in 1960 and is the largest commercial cave in Texas. There are several lakes and pools of clear water. THe cave is still an active cave so if you do visit be careful not to touch the formations. It is full of drperis, columns, stalagmites and stalactites which are formed by the minerals in the water dripping into the cave.

This is a fascinating sight and well worth the trip. FOr more information and pricing please click HERE.
