The cave was really cool it was about an hour and a half there was a
bottomless pit that fell 45 feet down and then took a 90 degree angle
turn and dropped another 30 ft. I know that because the tour guide not
from falling down it. Otherwise Id be typing with my elbow.  It was only 50 degrees in the cave and almost 90 outside.  When we got to the end of the tour the tour gide said when you exit you will feel a blast of light and warmth.  I thought she was taking about what came from my brothers butt, but I was mistaken. 

My gram came with us, but she took the short cut, and it was a good thing because there where a lot of stairs.  We were about 75 fee below the surface.

Noah is a dork.  He thought Bear Country would be "Lame".  He was WRONG!  When we first entered there was a Ram with very large horns, good for ramming, things.  Good thing it was hot and they were lying down, otherwise he might have rammed our car.

The we saw these mountain Lyons and they were beautiful.  Most of the Lyons were napping and one was lying on his back going AHHHHHH ... wind on my tummy.

We saw mountain goats that in my opinion were ugly and very, very fluffy.  Next we saw a giant white wolf.  Sitting on a rock, just resting.  And as we were driving by we saw another wolf in a little grassy knoll.

Then we got to BEAR COUNTRY!  There were hundreds of Bears!  Some of them were scratching their backs on poles, some were sitting in the water, one was on top of the log and another was relieving himself ... ew!  Man did they smell.  Then the food truck came in to the area.  All of the bears fell into line behind the truck.  Sleeping bears, watering bears, scratching bears, pooping bears, all bears, hundreds of them, following one small truck.
