Natural Bridge Caverns

Over the Easter weekend (I know… this post is LONG overdue…), Brian and I went to San Antonio to visit his family. Together, we took a day trip out to Natural Bridge Caverns. The area gets its name from the bridge¬†that exits in nature.

I’ve never been to any sort of cavern before, so I was very impressed. The cave trail is .75 miles of underground beauty. Being the weekend, it was very crowded. We were basically shoulder to shoulder with people walking through the tunnels (which made me stopping to take photos every 2 feet very awkward…). I’m definitely looking forward to going back on a weekday when we can really take out time meandering along.

My favorite room in the cave was the Emerald Lake. The water was so clear and the reflections were simply beautiful.

Because this was our first time, we opted for the basic Discovery Tour. Natural Bridge Caverns also offers a Hidden Passages Tour, and Adventure Tour, and an early morning/night time Lantern Tour, where you explore the dark caves by lantern light only. If underground isn’t your thing, there’s a large ropes course outside ending with a zip line.

Brian bought some souvenirs, along with a beautiful necklace for me!

End of the Holiday Season

As the holiday decorations come down and we all reflect on our first week back at work or school, I wanted to post a compilation of my holiday photos.

I had a wonderful few weeks! Brian and I traveled to San Antonio to visit his family. In one very eventful night, we took a river boat cruise, walked along the Riverwalk, taking in all the beautiful lights, saw the Alamo, and had dinner and drinks at the Hardrock.

Back at home, my family walked the Lakeway trail of lights. For being absolutely free and within walking distance from our house, I was VERY impressed. Nice job, Lakeway.

Finally, we all went to the Austin Trail of Lights. It was so cool! We bought the zip passes and were able to enter 45 minutes before the crowds. Brian, my family, and I could meander along the trail without having to worry about people blocking our views. After walking the trail, we rode the ferris wheel. We had a great view of downtown from the top!

San Antonio

Two weeks ago, I took a trip to San Antonio with Brian to meet his family. We had a blast! We tailgated at the UTSA game, spent a late night at the¬†River Walk, and wandered Market Square. At Market Square, we went to the iconic Mexican restaurant, Mi Tierra. It has such a beautiful bakery! I’m already looking forward to our next visit San Antonio – they have such a photogenic downtown.
