Treasure Hunters – The Wonders of Pedernales Falls – Part 2


Pedernales Falls – A Maze of Limestone Boulders



Our “treasure hunting gear” went into high as we followed the narrow trail down to the Pedernales River.  Leaping onto the limestone boulders in the river, we knew we had hit “pay dirt!”


All around us was a “Maze” of natural treasure carved in intricate details and patterns that beckoned us to explore it further.   Following the “secret” passages through the rocks, each turn revealed natural artwork that rivaled the Louvre in Paris.

Careful not to slip on the slick rock, the further we went into this “maze of masterpieces” the more awed we became.  What powerful artist was at work here?

This artistry was crafted by the power of water with its paintbrushes of erosional forces.  The artist at work with these brushes – our Creator – the King of Creativity.
