... went is larger than 14 football fields. In some areas the ceiling looms 200 feet above. And throughout our 3 mile, 4 hour walk through, we were mesmerized at every turn. There are no two stalagmites or stalactites, popcorn, drapery, or pools alike. Really, it is just so hard to describe this place. The only thing I can liken it to was the first time I ever stuck my face under water in the Caribbean while snorkeling. If anyone has ...
... Cavern's was formed 20 M years ago when tectonic activity forced gigantic limestone reef to rise from inland sea - sulfuric acid over time ate away the rock creating caves and passageways.

This resulted in the stalactites and stalagmites. in 1923 Calvin Coolidge declared the caverns a National Monument and in 1930 a National Park.

How dreadful that would have been. Drove from the caverns ...
... the bottle shop, and more than half the mornings when I've stopped by after dropping the kids at school I'm in line behind a person with a flat of beer cans and a big bottle of whisky. I'm talking like two liters or larger. This is at 8:15 a.m. There is nothing else in their shopping order. I wonder what their day will be like.
