Mammoth Cave

I'm going to quickly do a few posts about our recent road trip. For going 3000+ miles, I didn't take many photos.

We left on a Wed afternoon, drove to somewhere in Kansas and spent the night, then drove hard all day Thursday. Due to rainstorms and closed interstates, we didn't arrive at Mammoth Cave NP until late Thursday. We stayed in a cute little cabin (the bed was a little snug for the 3 of us!) close to the visitor's center. On Friday we explored the visitor's center, went on a cave tour, completed the Junior Ranger program, and did a short walk to Stephen Bishop's gravesite.

Our visit was great but too short. Like most national parks, there is always so much more you can do/explore with just a little bit more time. In retrospect, I wish we had spend 2 nights there. Just a wee bit more time for another tour or a longer hike. We'll just have to journey back again someday soon.

Not many photos cause it is kinda dark in a cave...
Going through Fat Man's Misery was by far
the favorite part of the tour
