TPW TV – Cave People


Caving at Colorado Bend State Park.

This is Passport to Texas

Modern day cave explorers duck, climb, crawl, and squeeze their way through the dark and mysterious world that exists beneath the surface. Take a cave tour with Jason Hairston at Colorado Bend State Park the week of September 11, on the Texas Parks and Wildlife TV series on PBS.

Usually when you’re in your campsite, on a trail, you don’t typically think about what is 20, 30, 40 feet beneath you…But what is beneath you is another world. And it’s a world that is ready to explore. And so on cave tours here we give people an opportunity for people to get just a little taste of what it’s like to be a cave explorer. So we do get a lot of questions and concerns from potential cave tour participants about how challenging is it? Is it too tight? Is it going to be too dark? Is it too scary? When you start a cave tour, it’s not something you normally do. There’s going to be some discomfort. Maybe a little anxiousness. That’s normal. And that’s part of this whole process. It’s working through that. It’s a challenge, right?

The segment called Cave People airs the week on September 11 on the Texas Parks and Wildlife TV Show on PBS. Check your local listings.
