    Domes and Dripstones Tour

    August 21 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 91 °F

    Went on this two hour classic tour to see areas that have been used for 100 years. Went through a sinkhole, down lots of stairs and ducked under lots of rock. The best part of the tour was seeing “Frozen Niagara”, which is a dripstone that looks like a waterfall. Saw lots of stalactite and stalagmites on this tour. The difference?!? Stalagmites and using all of their “might” to get up! Well worth it and it was a nice 54 in the cave vs 91 outside.Read more

    Mammoth Cave National Park

    August 21 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 91 °F

    National Parks never disappoint at their campgrounds. Nothing like a nap in a hammock and a quiet campsite surrounded by birds and wildlife. Hot, but not as humid as we’ve been in so we are hopeful it will cool off tonight as these sites are the most beautiful and the most simple. 🏕

    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.

    Mammoth Cave

    July 17, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 84 °F

    Today we visited Mammoth Cave National Park. We went on a 2 hour tour of a cave. It was over 300 steps down into the cave. It was awesome. Many big cave rooms and formations. On the way out there were many cave crickets. Unfortunately, no bats because the cave is infected with the fungus that causes white nose bat syndrome. We decided more ice cream was needed. Then, on to our next sleeping spot.Read more

    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
