State Park Underground
At Government Canyon State Natural Area in San Antonio, we gather around to receive our assignments for the day. One team will explore a cave-like feature called 9-H-1. Another team will head to Lost Pothole, a cave that requires a rappel to access, says Marvin Miller, who leads caving expeditions for the Government Canyon Karst Project. It harbors the kind of mystery that cave explorers love.
