Squire Boone Caverns
Last Saturday was a rare day for us with absolutely nothing marked on the calendar!! We took a road trip to Squire Boone Caverns for the day. We had a great time! You had to go down a metal spiral staircase of 73 steps to get down there, with a few more steps to climb later. Once down, the tour took about an hour. Naturally, 10 minutes into the tour, Isaac said he had to go to the bathroom! He made it the whole tour, though. The cave was pretty cool, although nothing like when we visited Ruby Falls. There was one formation called "Fried Egg" that the boys liked. They were pretty fascinated with the whole cave, actually. After the cave, we visited the giftshop, mined for gems, and went to the grist mill. It was such a hot day that the 54 degree cave felt great!
