Road trip 2011 Day 1, Part 1.

 Today we hit the road and drove 6 1/2 hours and explored Luray's caverns. It was stunning!
The kids loved being in the bowels of the earth. This place really lets you know how amazing this planet truly is.



 


 








We even got to hear a stalagttite organ. A true organ that was hooked up to 37 stalagtites around the cavern. The stalagttites are capable of producing tone. Kind of like when you fill glasses with various levels of water and tap them.. They had a mallet, kind of like what taps the chords in a piano, on these pre selected stalagttites. It was so weird. It made for a perfect road trip stop.
