The Mammoth Caves

My good friend, college roommate and I decided to take a road trip to see our other friend in Tenessee. Of course no roadtrip is ever fun without some tours and trips along the way. We could not pass up the Mammoth Caves.

So we headed to this amazing National Park to see if we could head on a quick tour, so we could get back on the road. 


However, there was no quick tour, but ONLY a 2 hour tour available, so we decided that was the tour.  I'm so glad we did it.

On the bus ready to head to the beautiful caves! I couldn't wait!!

It was amazing to be inside the caves. They were just beautiful! The rock formations were gorgeous! It's crazy that they are just under ground 250 feet below.

However, the most breath taking was when we got to this beautiful part of the cave.



This is a huge bucketlist item crossed off for me! I was so excited to be able to do this in Kentucky on our road trip to Nashville. 

I must warn you, if you're afraid of small spaces, are super tall, have knee or hip problems, this is probably a place you might want to stay away from as a lot of walking is involved, you have to climb many stairs and some parts are very narrow. As small as I am, it was tricky at times! 


Have you visited the Mammoth Caves?

Never been there, but it looks beautiful and totally worth it! Glad y'all went on the tour, even if it was longer than originally expected!

never been there, but we have similar places around there (I'm in east TN) and yes - my claustophobia keeps me from enjoying the beauty.
