This was my first trip to Fredericksburg, Texas and we stayed in a B & B on Main Street. We got a map of the area and this was on it so we wanted to check it out. We arrived at the park, parked in the lot and walked over to the viewing area. We each paid $5 (WELL WORTH IT!) and walked down to the lower viewing area that is open on certain dates. We went on a Sunday night. When we took our seats, a park ranger or someone that worked at the park, went through a whole tutorial with photos on bats and a bat emergence. It was so cool, I've never really thought about bats or cared to learn about them, but I loved the intro they gave! We sat there for about 10 minutes while she talked, and then the bats started emerging around 8:51 pm. We were BLOWN away there were SO many bats! It was one of the coolest things we've ever seen.The emergence took about 15-20 minutes and we were able to see them on the lower level. It got a little dark but we still got an awesome video!!! You have to do this if you are in the area!!!!
