Big Hole in the Ground

Today we went to visit a local Virginia attraction, Luray Caverns  At first I thought it might be just a tourist trap.  It was truly an amazing site to see.

It was dicovered back in 1878, by farmers.  They found a hole in the ground and found the caverns below.

This is a lake only 20 inches deep.  You are looking at a reflection of the ceiling.  Pretty cool, right?

They illuminated the pathway with candles.

I found this sign funny:)

This pond of water is called the Wishing Well.  People throw in coins and make a wish.  Then once a year the area is drained and the money collected.  It is given to local charities.

Named Fried Eggs
Well it turned out to be a HUGE hole in the ground.  I highly recommend checking this place out if you are in the area.  Thanks for stopping by.

We took the kids there last year. Max calls it Volcano Mountain. We will totally go again, it was really cool.
