Cave Without a Name…sounds pretty spooky, right? Despite its mysterious monicker (or lack thereof), the cave provides visitors with a fascinating geological adventure. It’s hard to imagine that no one knows for certain how far the cave stretches. According to our guide, graduate students are in the process of mapping its outer-reaches and have yet to find its endpoint.
For many years, the cave had only one opening. Animals fell down the hole over the years, and fossils have been found directly underneath it. Some animals even survived the fall, and their remains were found deeper in the cave.
Stalactites? Stalagmites? I can never remember which is which. They sure are beautiful though.
Our guide informed us that one formation had earned the nickname “The Christmas Tree.” I could totally see the ressemblance. My daughter’s favorite formation was a rippling area that looked like a piece of bacon.
We enjoyed our afternoon underground. This is a great adventure during hot Texas days since the cave is nice and cool.
For more information, visit the Cave Without a Name website. The cave is located about 12 miles outside of Boerne, Texas. When you go, ask about discounts for military and seniors. Also, children under age 6 receive free admission.
Note: All opinions are my own. It’s a good idea to verify information before you head out. We paid for our own admission to the cave.
