I don't get the chance to adventure as much as I used to. Fortunately, I can vicariously live through the journeys of others including two adventurers who recently shared what it's like inside the caverns of Cave-In-Rock State Park in southern Illinois.
If you found a mysterious hole in the ground, would you grab some rope and descent down into it? A group of explorers did and learned the unknown hole they found went down over 200 feet into the Earth.
No state in America has caves quite like those you'll find in Missouri. One of them can lay claim to being the largest cave entrance room in the United States. It's truly something to "marvel" at. Literally. Oh, and it was once believed to have the fountain of youth inside, too.
When It comes to caves, I am all in. I love them. Well, unless they are very small caves that I have to crawl into and out of, don't like those. Last year, I came across a huge cave in the middle of 107 acres of beautiful hills and woods in Eastern Kentucky...
