... stone oddities as well as astounding vistas and views. It was nearly overwhelming. My amazing husband happily obliged every time I wanted to pull over to take pictures (which was a lot). My favorite things to see were the settlements built into the rock. The cave homes are so fascinating and make you feel like you’ve been transported to visit Fred and Wilma Flinstone (there is actually a Flinstone hotel in Goreme).
