Just off IH-35 going to Georgetown, Texas is a cheesy billboard with bad graphics of prehistoric animals. It has an equally unappealing name; Inner Space Cavern. Of course we had to check this out.
This is a gem of a small limestone cave found while the highway department was core drilling samples back in 1963. When they broke into a hollow pocket an adventurous/crazy highway worker decided to ride the drill bit forty feet down into the unknown. That was when they discovered what is now called Inner Space Cavern.
This is a limestone cave so it has lots of neat formations. Stalactites hang from the ceiling. Stalagmites grow up from the floor. These have been formed by water slowly seeping through the limestone over a few thousand years.
Sure there is lots of science behind these formations and geological pockets but sometimes it's more fun to just look, wonder and let your imagination decide how this happened.
Here are some tiny bats. They were near the entrance and about the size of my thumb
It's Imagination Time!
