My favorite thing is to go somewhere I’ve never been. Diane Arbus
Being so close to Mammoth Cave National Park we decided to take a detour through Kentucky. Seeing that the campground at the park doesn’t have electric we opted for Nolin Lake State Park. We made a great choice, this campground was practically deserted and absolutely stunning. We scored a lakefront spot with no reservation.
We watched the sunset, built a fire, made a little food and hit the sack to get up early for our tour of the caves. We took the Domes and Dripstones tour it was 2hrs, 3/4 miles and 500 stairs. It was an amazing lesson of history and science. I hate that we didn’t get better photos but it’s a cave so it’s dark and there are no flashes allowed. We only took my phone so we weren’t carrying a ton of stuff through tiny passageways.
