Mamoth Caves


We stayed at Mammoth Caves National Park last night so we could get up early and take the 8:45 tour of the caves this morning. We met the Ranger at the visitor center and took a 15 minute bus ride to the cave entrance. Check out the pictures for Rachel's great stalagtite and stalagmite photos. The Mammoth Caves are the longest cave system in the world. There are over 345 miles of documented cave passageways. Pretty neat. Brittany, aka "Nature Girl"...did not appreciate the large numbers of cave crickets that live near the entrance to the caves. We didn't tell her that she had a GIANT cave cricket sitting on the back of her head for the first .5 mile of the cave because we knew she would scream and jump around and knock herself senseless on the walls of the cave....it eventually jumped off. haha.

On the raod after the cave tour to Mullens, West Virginia. We decided to make it a short day so the girls could spend a little time in the pools. We drove through Lexington, Kentucky and Huntington, WV. Kentucky is very beautiful....gently rolling hills, miles and miles of pastures filled with beautiful horses.

On to Williamsburg tomorrow via White Sulfur Springs and Monticello (Charlottesville, VA).
