    Domes & Dripstones Tour - Mammoth Cave

    June 23, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 81 °F

    10 minute bus ride to the cave entrance - a metal door which was locked behind us. Brilliant tour squeezing and ducking our way single file down a long low narrow staircase into the heart of the cave. Lots of big and small boulders litter the sides of the path where the roof has fallen in, it's very stable now so they say !!! Then a long passageway with smooth sides where the river carved out the cave. Highlight was at the end, down more stairs to Frozen Niagara, stalactites, stalagmites and columns where they join in the middle. Loads of cave crickets on the ceilings and walls near the exit.Read more
