This morning, we made our way up I-65 from Nashville and headed to Mammoth Cave National Park on the recommendation of our friend, Toni. Mammoth Cave is known as the longest cave system in the world, and we took a tour to see just a small part of this amazing underground labyrinth.
Our tour was two hours (and 400+ stairs) long winding up and down through some tight areas. I was thankful to be no taller (or heavier!) than I am, because I could only imagine how difficult it would be for somebody of either description to make it through.
I was also VERY thankful I came through my hip surgery so well, because today was a good test of the strength of my hip. I’m sure glad I was so diligent about doing my physical therapy exercises! My hip did great today.
Amazing photos! Have fun!
Thanks! I used the railing as a substitute tripod in order to shoot clear shots in the dim light. 🙂
This sounds like it was a great “Litmus test” for your hip. I’m glad YOU did it and not me, though, because caves are not on the agenda for this claustrophobic and chubby girl!
You DEFINITATELY wouldn’t have enjoyed some of the areas of the tour being claustrophobic!
