Being the explorers that we are. We took a little rocket ship trip about 50 miles from home to Cave Springs Park. Here we got to do a little gem panning, and fossil digging, Then we stepped into the underground world with a cave tour. We had a wonderful guide that taught us all sorts of fascinating things. We found some cave creatures. We observed some stalagmites, stalactites, and columns. We waded through water and ducked under low hanging ceilings. They had a great museum with snakes and lots of geodes it even had a snake or two and some turtles and ducks. All in all, we had a fantastic time and we will be taking another Caving field trip to a bigger cave in just a few weeks. If you have a cave near you or have the opportunity to visit and tour one you should. They are fascinating and amazing and wonderful to be in on a hot summer day.
