Our poor little car had a message for us again this morning ...
Undeterred, we made the 20 minute trip to the National Park. After a little research, we decided on two self guided tours - The Natural Entrance, and the Big Room.
The entrance fee was a very reasonable $6.00 each, and then we rented two audio devices
( $5.00 each ) to listen to commentary as we made our way through the caves.
The audio sticks are a must !!
We found the natural entrance, and were soon in awe.
Teresa and I have only been through two other caves, so we are not experienced cavers, but, whoa, was this cave HUGE.
With our audio sticks close to our ears, we learned so much about this massive cave. Every so often you would see a number on a post, then by punching in the number on your stick, you would learn about what you were viewing at that moment.
In fact, we were up to about 50 different info entries.
We knew from past experience that our photos wouldn't really turn out, but here are a few decent ones.
After about 3 hours of touring we were done, and soon found ourselves driving home. Neither one of us were really talking, we were just kind of in a daze, unable to put into words what we had just witnessed.
Yes, we are freezing our socks off, but YES, it was worth every minute !!
