Most People Don’t Realize An Underground River Flows Right Through Texas

The Caverns of Sonora in Sonora, Texas have been consistently rated some of the most beautiful in the entire world – and they just got even better. Not many people realize that the pools of water along the tours are actually runoff from giant river systems operating underground. Some of these interconnecting bodies of water extend as far west and south as the Rio Grande Valley, finally emerging above ground at the famous, crystalline Devil’s River. Witnessing the anomaly firsthand is a truly unforgettable experience and one that every Texan should aim to see at some point.
