Day 7 and I can't believe it has been a week since the wedding. Time is flying. Today we traveled to Lewis and Clark Caverns which, as we found out, weren’t actually visited by the explorers. The tour lasted about 2 hours as we trekked through low ceilings, tight walkways, and steep stairs. Our guide was very knowledgeable, and we even saw some bats!
