Remember my telling you about my hubby's fried nerves? Well they finally sizzled and popped and smoked until he couldn't take it any more. So he signed himself out of the storms in Kentucky and vacation became his focus. Like a well trained puppy I follow him wherever he goes, so here we are, back at home in Amarillo, TX.
We did do a little traveling and sightseeing before we made it home.
Before we left Kentucky we visited Mammoth Cave National Park. It was good to get away from the camper and I enjoyed the day. The cave is mammoth for sure. If you are ever in Kentucky, you should visit the park. You should call ahead for reservations as the guided tours seemed to fill up fast and many were sold out. Check it out on the web before you go because there are about sixteen different tours you can take. We took the historical tour. It was interesting but left me wondering if the other tours would have been better. Some of the tours are only for the very brave and the very physically fit. That's not me. So I'll be content saying I saw Mammoth Cave and leave it at that.
Here you can see water dripping from the rocks above the cave entrance.
It is hard to get good photos under ground but I do have a few to show you. Somehow the hugeness of the cave is lost in a photo.
Inside the cave are many narrow passage ways. This one is called Fat Man's Misery. I made it through, just in case you were wondering.We exited through the same hole we entered.
