    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

    Mammoth Cave NP - KY

    June 20, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 82 °F

    Mammoth Cave system is the longest in the world (405 miles and growing) and is a World Heritage Site. At the visitor centre we picked up trail maps, booked a couple of cave tours for later on in the week and looked round the exhibit. Then had a great hike through the lush forest down to Echo River which flows out of the cave system and back up via the Mammoth Dome Sink Hole. Hitchhiker butterfly joined us for a while on Stew's head. Feeling the heat with temperatures in the 80s F.Read more

    Mammoth Cave Historic Tour

    June 21, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 84 °F

    10:00 tour, mid 70sF above ground it's a cool 54F in the cave. We walked 2 miles along passageways that rivers used to flow, through huge dome rooms, up and down stairs, through narrow Fat Man's Misery, low Tall Man's Misery and past the Bottomless Pit. Mammoth Dome was impressive with columns which reminded us of Arbroath Abbey ruins, the climb up was 155 stairs, strange to think we were at the top of this at the sink hole yesterday. Interesting to see the writings on the wall and ceilings of the past people who had explored and worked the caves with only reed torches for light.Read more

    Besuch im Untergrund

    May 26, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Es war so eiskalt kurz vor dem Eingang der Höhle, dass ich zum Auto gegangen bin um meinen Hoody zu holen.
    John hat zu Anna gesagt, dass sie keine Jacke mitnehmen braucht, was sich als falsch heraus stellte.

    Die beiden bleiben länger dort und beim nächsten Besuch in der Höhle, nehmen sie sicher ne Jacke mit.

    Es war schön Anna und John kennen lernen zu dürfen.

    Wild Cave

    August 12, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 81 °F

    The wild cave tour was amazing. It was 6 hours of hiking, climbing, and crawling through tiny holes. I constantly kept asking questions to get history of the cave and the tour guide was happy to answer. We crawled through one spot that was only 9 inches high, where we had to turn our heads sideways to fit through. A fantastic tour and I'm so glad I did it!Read more

    Mammoth Cave, United States

    August 12, 2015 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 68 °F

    I'm so excited because I've been wanting to go to this park for years. I originally planned on going on a tour that was both educational and adventurous, but when I got there the only tour that was available that I wanted to do was the Wild Cave.

    Mammoth Cave campground, KY

    April 2, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    We had our 2nd bone head mistake of the trip. We left our 2 outdoor mats on the picnic table of the Memphis campground when we left for Mammoth Cave 😣
    We dropped the camper at the site and went straight to the visitors center just in time to catch a short tour that was starting in 5 minutes. Tour was led by ranger Rick and went through historical entrance.Read more

    Mammoth Caves National Park

    April 3, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Did the Domes and Dripstones tour today; yesterday evening, we did the Mammoth Passage tour that took us in the historic entrance.
    Some heavy downpour rains in the evening; tent go a little wet inside, but teardrop was mostly dry except for vent we left open.
    Went to a Mexican restaurant bar to watch final of NCAA men's basketball, but had to leave before the end because it was closing time. We had to check our phones to learn the unfortunate outcome 😣Read more
