This was very interesting. I had never been in a cave so didn’t know what to expect. The guide gave great info. Make sure to wear good walking shoes, it is slippery inside and the ground is uneven.

Have been to many caverns. The stalactites and stalagmites are not dramatic here, but the civil war history including equipment used to mine saltpeter was excellent.
