WHERE ARE THE FALLS OF MARBLE FALLS?
Before the dam was built to form Lake Marble Falls on the Colorado Rier, there were falls formed by a shelf of limestone running diagonally across the river from northeast to southwest. The upper layer of limestone, brownish on the exterior but deep blue inside, was so hard and cherty it was mistaken for marble. They are now under water and only visible when the LCRA lowers the lake for repairs.
