We made our way over to Mammoth Cave and did the "New Entrance" tour on Wednesday. Mammoth is the longest known cave but it doesn't have a lot else going for it. There are not many formations in the cave to see, but we got a few sights:
Lots of flat ceilings and tumbled down rocks:
The famous "Frozen Niagara Falls"
Troy caught a cave cricket in his flashlight:
And just at the exit we finally got some traditional stalagmites/stalactites:
After the tour, we met Tammy, a friend who moved from South Bend a few years ago and now finds herself in Bowling Green. We had a great visit which included walking around the downtown square.
Someone had decorated the statue of "Flora" with daffodils that were blooming:
I caught a bird on top of this statue, which I thought might be Fauna, but was not.
I got five family pictures on this trip which has to be a record. (I've gone a whole summer without getting one!) This, however, was one of them, taken by a stranger in the cave:
And now we are home. A couple more days off work for me (one more for Troy) and then back to what we call normal. Maybe by then I'll be ready to eat--I am so stuffed after this week of eating, eating, eating!!
