Desi and "ice cream cone"Wes and I took Desi to Howe Caverns yesterday.  We took the 90 minute tour of the cave, which included a boat ride, and enjoyed it very much. This is only one of the two formations that we could touch.  Our hands have a natural oil that comes off on the rocks when we touch them.  The water dripping down doesn’t stick, then, and the rocks stop “growing”.

 It’s 154 feet down and a chilly 52 degrees, but we kept moving and walking. inside Howe CavernsIt’s also very dark, making picture taking with an iPhone a little difficult.  It is pretty though. Bumpy and DesiFor some reason, my flash wouldn’t work,(probably operator error) so this picture is dark, like most of what I took, disappointing me.panning for valuable rocksEmerging into daylight, we purchased a bag of rocks/sand so that Desi could “pan” for treasure.picking out the treasuresHe had great fun picking out the valuables after the water washed the sand away. ( I should have taken his hat off, I know)rock collectionHe came home with a pile of pretty rocks and a chart to figure out what his treasures were.  That was fun for all of us. 

Good day, good fun.
