We had the opportunity to go on a ranger led tour of part of Mammoth Cave, which is the largest cave in the world with over 400 miles of surveyed passageways. The cold air rushes out to great us as we approach the cave entrance and inside the temperature is a chilly 54F.
Our particular tour led us past centuries old carvings of previous explorers, ruins of old saltpeter mining operations and through a narrow passageway reminiscent of slot canyons out in Utah. It was a fun introduction to only a small part of the cave.
