This last weekend found us deep underground in a cave. Crystal Cave in Wisconsin to be exact. Though not the largest or most spectacular cave I’ve been in, it was an interesting little walk. My Grandson wanted to see a cave, actually he wanted to see bats in a cave.

We didn’t see any bats as it is summer and the bats stay outside during the summer and don’t use this cave except for their hibernation in the winter. Also, when the bats are in residence they don’t allow tours of the cave to maintain the health of the bats that seek shelter there.

This is a photo of small stalactites, they looked a little like a dinosaur’s mouth and teeth to me. What do you think?

 These photos were taken in the ‘Wishing Room’. Where they allow people to see if they can get a coin to stick into the wall and make a wish.

Wonder what my little Grandson was wishing for while his Mom helped him place his coin. What do 3 year olds wish for? He is sometimes Batman, sometimes Spiderman, a knight or even one of Darth Vader’s Strom Troopers.  I’m betting he was wishing for a big lollypop…which he got from the little gift shop by the cave before we left.

  6. Regardless if your Grandson's coin stuck, he got his wish - the lollipop and a special outing with his family. I enjoyed learning the bat facts, too.

  7. The tiny tubes resembling "Dinosaur Teeth" are referred to as "soda straw formations," and always reminded me of crocodile teeth - similar paths for different minds, eh?

  8. Gorgeous colours and textures in the cave. Looks as though it was a little chilly since gloves are being worn!
