Tuesday, December 11, 2023:
Mark and Paula decided to see what Mammoth Cave looked like.

The tour group stepped into the underground where the temperature is about 54 degrees year round.

The park ranger told of early explorers from 100 years ago.

Then they headed down even more.

Low ceiling in spots underground.

Then they went down again!

Of course, there was a bottomless pit too.

Then it was revealed they were 350 feet below ground level and only 50 feet up from the water table!

What goes down must go up and that is what they did.

Awesome scenery along the way.

Finally there was light at the end of the tunnel.
Mark and Paula walked just two miles of the 426 miles of caves in the area.

Quote of the day:    Glad to have survived that experience.  Mark < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
