Back from Vacation

On Friday, which was our anniversary, Don and I went hiking to a place called The Cascades. It's a really beautiful waterfall off the Blue Ridge Parkway. It's a nice hike and great scenery.

We took David to Linville Caverns one day. He loved being inside the cave where it was a cool 52 degrees (year round). It is so great that the cave was wheelchair accessible!

Spelunking at Worley's Cave

This picture was taken in a room known as the Bridal Suite. Legend has it that an actual wedding took place there years ago. I sure hope the bride didn't wear white!

The last day of our vacation we went spelunking at a cave called Worley's Cave in Eastern Tennessee. It was incredible!! We hiked 2 miles in, over rocks, under rocks, through an underground river and saw some really fantastic things. That is me under the rock, which was actually a "crawl" to another room of the cave. We all turned off our headlamps and did it in complete darkness......I have never "seen" darkness like that. The cave is 7 miles long, so we only saw a small portion of it. I would love to go back and see the rest sometime.
We also did some white water rafting on Tuesday, but I have to drop the camera off for developing. I used one of those disposable waterproof ones so mine wouldn't get wet.
We had a great vacation. But I'm glad it's over......I'm tired!
