{Amazing Caverns}

Yesterday I joined Katie's class for a trip to the Natural Bridge Caverns. I love caves.... ever since Mike & I took Katie to the Branson caves, I was intrigued. This cave, however, BLEW ME AWAY! Literally! When we first got there, we see this.... it is a rock this is literally a bridge. You see the top first, then you'll go down, and you'll see the bridge while almost standing under it.

Then, after we hear the warnings of the Cave Creed: Look ~ don't touch anything. Kill nothing inside ~ only time .... and I can't remember the final creed. Basically, hold on to the bars at all time b/c it's a LONG way to the bottom baby! Oh, and it's wet, so don't drag your feet, and expect drops of water to fall on your head at any given moment (which did happen). This cave took us 18 stories down! Whoo!

Here is the group going down into the cave...

This is the little tiny hole where the cave was found.... story was that the family who owned this land knew about the rock bridge, but had no clue about anything else. In the '60's, a few scientists asked to explore around this bridge to see if there was anything worth exploring, and they found it was. Several HUGE rooms full of the stuff as saw. So, the owners decided to make big time moolah and open it up to the public.

This is going all the way down... WAY down. I had to really add some lighting in my edit, so I'm sure my pictures look like crap, but I wanted everyone to get the idea of what it looked like inside. Just breathtaking!

For this final picture... the guide kept telling us we'll see Snoopy. Me and another parent couldn't figure out how they got Snoopy out of this, but finally some kid moved, and we saw the nose. THEN it looked like Snoopy! Can you see Snoopy? (hint... nose is on the left, ears on the right)


  1. I have been there. It is so amazing.

  2. That is pretty cool. But I have to admit, thats a fairly lame snoopy. hahah-- it took me a while:)

  3. It looks like you had a blast! I'm like marcie, it took me a while to fine snoopy in that image :o) Way cool pictures!!

  4. Looks like a lot of fun and don't forget, educational too. I'll bet it was beautiful to be there. That spiral staircase is too cool.

  5. Caves like that are so fun to explore.

  6. It looks awesome-- and reminds me a little bit of how I got claustrophobic the last time we went cave exploring-- eek!

  7. How fun!!!!! Glad you posted pictures.

  8. Wow! It looks like it was amazing! I think it is great that you were able to go on the feild trip too. My kids will say from time to time...Mom - remember when we went to.....on a field trip together. I love it! :) Have a wonderful weekend my friend! :)
