Grand Caverns in Grottoes, VA. It was wow from the moment we stepped into the caverns! This caverns has a high concentration of "shield formations". An uncommon formation in most caverns, they have some 35+ here:
|the ladder was left from days gone by, not in use now;)|
|colorful lights make this the rainbow room|
|this wonderful room was like a vaulted cathedral ceiling|
|wonderful drapery walls lead up to a very high ceiling!|
|in the middle and on the right, two very nice shields!|
|great examples of cave bacon|
|part of the Appalachian Trail|
a nice, level, trail
(the first in a long
while) along the
Endless Caverns. Right where we stayed!
an old candle holder stills hangs
in place reminding us how tours
used to be here!
|we had a few bats flying around in this cavern|
We attended a mini bluegrass festival. It was awesome! Some of the musicians were Grammy and CMA winners and they were all great!
