Next Stop Cave City, Kentucky!

We arrived safely in Mammoth Cave in Cave City, Kentucky. Again we are at a Jellystone Campground. It is beautiful. A bit hot… but beautiful. We had a surprise when Grandma Jo and Grandpa Howie showed up to visit with us. The first night we watched a movie at the campgrounds and chased lightning bugs. I made lots of new friends and had a great time playing with kids for a change. The next day we got up early and went over to Mammoth Cave to take some of the cave tours. On the first tour we saw a deer REALLY close!

I was so amazed that this could be under ground!

I thought this looked like a dragons mouth.

This was called Frozen Niagara.

I guess it kind of looks like Niagara Falls but I don’t know for sure.

We took a guided hike to learn about the history of the caves and what they were used in the past.

I was hot and tired and miserable. My behavior crashed and Mommy had to walk me off for a “lecture”.

On the third cave trip I found a salamander, cave crickets and a bat!

Amazing that this used to me a mine of sorts.

After the caves we cooled off with a dip in the pool and family time of the HUGE water slide. The pool was so crowded because it was so hot outside! We enjoyed the rest of the day and the next just relaxing and enjoying the camping experience.
