What an experience! The bats took about 30-45 minutes to complete their exit from the caves and it was the most amazing and interesting sight I had ever seen! Once in a lifetime experience!!!

I was just as amazed by this as I was by the grand canyon. If your in Austin make sure you head down to the bridge during sunset, its completely overwhelming.

I have witnessed the nightly flights on several occasions, and it is spectacular!

Watch around the top of the street lights and you will see the bats swoop in and devour countless mosquitoes and other insects.

It was interesting but at this time of year it was pretty dark when they exited the bridge.
