I took tons of pictures of all the beautiful mineral formations we saw and of the gem mining we did after our tour, so I'm making this a two-part post. Thanks for bearing with me!
All five of us were just in awe at the beauty and variety of God's creation under the ground we walk on everyday! The kids are still talking about our visit to the caverns and are asking to go back. I guess that's the sign of a meaningful field trip.
If you can find any caverns with stalactites and stalagmites in your state, or while you're on a vacation, I encourage you to take the time to visit. You and your children won't soon forget it!
More tomorrow on the second part of our adventure!
