When we were in Kentucky in June, I knew that I wanted to do something fun with the Fab Five on my birthday. The children were interested in touring a cave, and I liked the idea of playing the live-action version of Colossal Cave Adventure (the only “video” game I played as a child), so I looked at the options available at Mammoth Cave.
I didn’t have a lot of money budgeted for our trip, so I decided on the Mammoth Passageway Tour, which got us into the cave, and let us see one of the biggest rooms, the Rotunda. We also got to learn a lot about the history of the area, which was a great bonus!
After our cave tour, we took a hike down to see a spring at the cave’s entrance, and the Green River. On the way back up, we even got to see some deer!
This was a fun trip, but since we didn’t get to see any stalactites or stalagmites, I think we’re going to have to go back and take a different tour eventually!
