The annual Horseshoe Bay Cave tour was an overwhelming success. Organizers say, as of Sunday, 25 people were on the waiting list. Access to Horseshoe Bay is limited for most of the year because of groundwater flowing through the cave and to protect the habitat for brown bats. In August, the waters dry up momentarily. And that gives visitors like Bill Kephart of Aurora, Illinois, who has visited other caves, a unique and natural experience.
Kephart might have missed out on his experience at Horseshoe Bay cave. He admits he went with a friend who was looking for a new adventure…and found it.
