We had some visitors in town for our days off and of course we just had to take them to the caverns. We saw lots of rangers there on their days off, Noelle and I amongst them. J.T. and Alaric brought the blue "caving helmets" that Noelle had bought them for their birthdays. We stopped for a quick photo at the sign outside the visitor center,
We headed down, down, down past Bat Cave and through the Twilight Zone. We passed Devil's Spring and the Whale's Mouth, went through the Devil's Den and were soon at the Witches Fingers. I think J.T. was impressed by the tall, skinny stalagmites.
The boys were hungry at this point and so we headed up the elevator to get some snacks out of the car. We ate in some shade outside the visitor center. Then J.T. and Alaric filled out their junior Ranger books. Alaric didn't care to receive his badge but J.T. was excited to get his badge and take the pledge with Ranger Ellen.
