What a Card—Texas Edition

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about those “Barefoot Rights” Cards available over at barefooters.org. I discussed Michigan and Arizona, and how the law really doesn’t say what those cards say it is.

Yesterday, in Part 1, I looked at the National Park Regulations, as compiled in their Superintendent’s Compendiums, for Wind Cave National Park, along with Mammoth Cave and Carlsbad Caverns. They all require shoes inside their caves, but with no good reason.
