natural wonders

mammoth cave is the country's second-oldest tourist attraction (after niagra falls) and quite the amazing place --- my camera couldn't capture the really large chambers, the sheer hugeness of parts of the cave --- great historic artifacts from the salt-peter works that supplied gunpowder for the war of 1812, including 200 yr old water pipe made of poplar logs, and early nineteenth century graffiti --- and one of the best guides i've ever had for any kind of tour
