The young girl in the KOA office only knew McDonalds had breakfast. We drive through Horse Cave and Head to Cave City. “John, Wigwam Village!” “What?” “Pull over!” I jump out and take my pictures. This was the second wigwam village and one of only two that remain. The first was in Horse Cave. It is going to be a great day!
After breakfast, we head to Mammoth Cave National Park so I can sign up for the Historical Tour. I said I and not we. The last time we were here, both John and I took the New Entrance Tour. That is one of the times he filed for divorce!
I love caves! We see Mammoth Dome room and old mining relics. We see a bat. We see the Methodist Church where a preacher used to hold services. We learn about a hospital that operated here for a while. It turns out that the air was not good for the patients. We see historic graffiti. We learn how a slave guide discovered many of the sections we are walking through.
The first part of the tour is an easy walk. The second half is more challenging. We pass through the miseries. We turn sideways to fit through. We then have to bend at the waist for fifteen to twenty steps to reach another open area. It is great fun. We rest before we start our climb out. A spiral staircase with many steps leads us back to the entrance. My legs will aches tomorrow!
After lunch, we head to Dinosaur World. Normally, we might avoid a place so designed for kids but the parking lot is empty. For the price, it is great fun!
It rains first thing in the morning. It rains after we get back to the RV Park. Those buckeyes are working.
Note: While I take the tour, John finds time to take turkey pictures with his phone!
