Natural Bridge Caverns Texas - Globetrotting Diaries

Natural Bridge Caverns is one of the largest caverns in Texas, the Limestone sediments are simply beautiful creations, something that I had only seen on TV. I was a bit scared to get into the damp dark narrow cave!!
But once we were inside I was so mesmerized by these beautiful and delicate stalactites and stalagmites formations that I forgot about my fear!


It was damp and cold inside. The temperature in the caverns is 70 degrees F (21 degrees C) all year round with a relative humidity of 99%. The structures are still growing so you are not supposed to touch them.

Here is a glimpse…

The Entrance...

The scariest part...

And here it begins...



The beautiful Needle like formations hanging from the roof of the cave...

The tallest column "Watch Tower" is 50 foot high...

Castle of the White Giants...
