San Antonio: Natural Bridge Caverns & Wildlife Ranch

Our forth day we drove north past San Antonio to the Natural Bridge Caverns.

We walked down 180 feet into a deep cavern below the ground. We saw different layers of limestone, sedimentary rock formations and several large cavern rooms including the largest cavern room in Texas. It was really warm in the caverns with 99% humidity. It was very interesting to be under the ground that far in different rooms and walkways.

The cavern tour was a little over an hour long and when we "resurfaced" it was nice and warm outside. The boys played a little and then we had an outdoor picnic.

After our picnic, we went to a Wildlife Ranch. All of the animals were wandering around 400 acres and we could feed them or pet them as we drove past on a 4 mile loop. We saw giraffes, zebras, buffalo, antelope, rhinos, ostrich, llamas and many more animals (over 50 species).

Both the Natural Bridge Caverns and the Wildlife Ranch were amazing. I would recommend anyone who is near San Antonio to make the trip to see them. Well worth it!
