Caves, Sonora, Texas

The Caverns of Sonora
These caverns are huge with tons of stuff to see with a perfect temperature in the 80s.

History:
The Mayfield family began its ranching operations in Sonora Texas around the turn of the 20th Century. An opening in the rocks was found in the southern part of the ranch when a dog chased a raccoon into this 20-inch opening. Locals began exploring the cave sometime in the early 20’s.
