Well, my plan for Silly Saturdays fizzled out after just two weeks. Sorry, I got kind of busy. Plus, I was having a difficult time coming up with a good story a couple of weeks ago. Since the calendar’s about to flip to a new month (can you believe it’s June already), I’m going to try something a little different that will allow a little more variety. I’m also going to give myself the option to post this random sound bite post on either Saturday or Sunday. With summer upon us, my schedule is filling up. Vacations, day trips, great movies, and more fill my times.
Last weekend was Memorial Day weekend and a friend and I went camping in Mammoth Springs, KY. I thought I’d share some of the photos from our trip here this week. It was nice to get away from home and all of the things that should be done. We spend the first day relaxing around the campsite. My friend slept in while I read. Once the sun came out and lit up the tent, I had a hard time sleeping. On Sunday, we hiked around a couple of trails before taking a tour of the cave.
I love taking photos while I’m hiking. Anything that looks interesting, light playing in shadows, something that catches my eye. I snap a picture. My friend usually doesn’t mind as it means she gets a rest. Here are some of the hiking trail.
We had to turn off the flash on our cameras once we were inside the actual cave so not many of my pictures turned out. We spent two hours touring two miles of the cave. Our guide informed us that there are over 400 miles of discovered passages in the cave over six levels. This is the entrance.
We tentatively discussed camping at Land Between the Lakes in June, but that trip has not yet been planned. We’ll see if we make it. The first week in August I’ll be in Colorado with my parents so should get some good pics of Estes Park.
Enjoy your summer!!
