Three hours from home is one of the wonders of the natural world.... a constant 54 degrees....390+ miles of underground beauty; it was a perfect place to be on another dog day of summer.
Mammoth Caves is the longest cave system in the world. We saw about 2 miles of it, so I guess we have reason to return.
The grands did a bit of "mining" and sifted out all kinds of treasures.
We saw 2 of the 4 blue holes. We took a boat ride through a "young" cave that is still being formed by it's river. No walking tours for the next gazillion years here.
We played outlaw a bit. Then, strolled until the heat got us all.
We ended our little adventure here.
No cameras, no phones, no purses, no sandals....so I didn't get a picture of the car at the entrance to the plant.
$179,000.00 price tag-----seats only two, gets 17 miles per gallon, and as far as I can tell, still has to respect the highway speed limits. Could someone explain this to me. (I drive a Prius....I really don't get it.)
