New Braunfels, TX
This signage is located at the trailhead to Panther Canyon,
explaining to visitors about the Edwards Aquifer.
(And that's my daughter and I reflected in
A 51 acre trail located along the Balcones Enscarpment,
("The Balcones Escarpment is a geologic fault zone several miles wide consisting of several faultings, most of which both dip and are downthrown to the east. It extends in a curved line across Texas from Del Rio to the Red River and is visible eastward from Del Rio, where it is about 1,000 feet high, and northeastward from San Antonio to Austin, where it is about 300 feet high." It is the dividing line between the Texas Hill Country and the Plains of Texas.) http://www.tshaonline.org/handbook/online/articles/rxb01
This cave extended back about 15 feet
before it became too narrow to negotiate.
I saw no signs of habitation.
I'm glad that there are places to go
within the city limits
to escape technology and the hold it has on our lives.
