Treasure Hunters – The Wonders of Pedernales Falls – Part 3



Heart Shaped Hole carved into the limestone – Pedernales Falls


We were enthralled with the natural artwork we saw as we were exploring the maze of limestone boulders in the Pedernales River.  However, a danger that could easily spell disaster waited to claim us if we became distracted.

Scattered through the limestone formation were many holes filled with water.  Some were quite deep and some only a few feet deep.

Watch your step! Rock Art in the Pedernales

What kind of weird and wacky rock artists were at work here in the Pedernales?

Due to the floods that sweep through the Pedernales, there are some rapid erosion artists that have the ability to carve this limestone very quickly.


These rapid erosion artists are Cavitation, Plucking and Kolking.   They do some amazing work!  Find out a little more about them as we continue our adventure through this AMAZING Maze of the Pedernales!

Psalm 114:7-8

 7 Tremble, earth, at the presence of the Lord,
   at the presence of the God of Jacob,
8 who turned the rock into a pool,
   the hard rock into springs of water.
