The One Texas Cave That’s Filled With Ancient Mysteries

If you’re a history buff, listen up. (Even if you’re not, you should pay attention – this place is simply too neat for anyone to pass up.) When we think about canyons in Texas, our mind automatically drifts to the Palo Duro. That’s understandable considering it’s the second largest canyon in the nation, but there are plenty of smaller, lesser-known canyons in Texas that deserve some attention. One of those is Seminole Canyon, a 2000-acre park that contains some of the oldest Native American cave drawings in the country. See them for yourself:
