Mammoth Caves
 
We stopped by Mammoth Caves National Park on Sunday.
We took a 3 hour, 3 mile walk by lantern light through part of the cave.

The entrance to the caves.


Not far inside, looking back to the entrance.


It was quite dark., but there were some lights in the first part of the cave,


but mostly


we walked by the light of


these


15 handheld lanterns


that at one time were all confiscated by one of the guides


There were about 45 people on the trip


and often this was about all we could see!!!!
