Geocache Description:

The fault line creating the Hill Country begins with this geologic uplift located off MoPac. A 10 acre Travis County Park awaits you. Bring a picnic or a book to enjoy under the shelters. Typical Hill Country terrain.

First the geologic event creating the Balcones Fault occurred. From vantage point in the park you can see the uplift creating the fault. This area has many cracks and fissures which allow water to recharge the numerous streams, springs and creeks in the area. In the late 60s and early 70s Balcones Fault played the Armadillo World Headquarters often. They were good too. Then in August 2001 a geocache, 'It's Balcones Fault' was placed here. It was muggled after almost 100 finds. In 2003 this cache was placed as a replacement of the first thus the name 'Its Balcones Fault too" You are now searching for a Decon Container. This cache has the blessings of Travis County Parks, Thanks!.
