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.
