This is from the bottom landing looking up.
I love this shot!
After walking down, down, down, into the cave,
Through the cave,
Back UP through the cave,
Back UP the 98 stairs (but who's counting?!?!?)
And starting back UP the steep 1/2 mile hill....
Well, we were all a little tired.
I found a pretty area behind a bench, and asked for a grandparent picture with the boys.
I love this picture!!
These rock formations were so big! I should have put my thumb in there or something for reference.
You have to try not to touch the walls because the onyx is a mineral that forms on the walls.
Once we touch it, the mineral will stop growing.
C. loved caving!
He only got scared once.
This formation is so beautiful!
My camera doesn't do it justice.
It's between 3-4 stories tall.
At the bottom of the cave, there was a natural "Kodak Spot" where we all paused so everyone could get a picture in the circle.
(the rocks and the guy...hehe)
On the way back, we stopped at the Lincoln Memorial.
It was educational, and really fun!
Oh...and more exercise!!! (64 stairs!)
And on the way home, we had a very quiet ride. :)
