Sue's Worn Out


Today’s trip was to Jewel Cave National Monument. It’s the 2nd largest cave system in the world and a lot different that Wind Cave. This cave has a lot more volume than Wind Cave. The tour went through areas with large rooms and some or the typical stalactite and stalagmite formations you see in other caves plus other types of formations like “bacon” and flow stones that I’ve never seen before. Again I’ll let the pictures do the talking.
