Crystal Cave

My friend, Carrie, and I went on a road trip last week to see Crystal Cave and had such a fun day!  It was blazing hot outside so going to a cold cave was absolutely perfect!

It was soo cool down in the cave I actually got goosebumps after being down there for awhile.

The cave was discovered in 1881 by two brothers who slid down a hole into the cave!  I can’t imagine how scary that must have been for them! (or exciting if you are a little boy I guess)

They called this the ‘cave ghost’

Everything was so neat and we enjoyed our tour!

They had one room where visitors used to be able to press coins into the wall for a wish…but they stopped allowing visitors to do that this year.  If I remember correctly the cave opened to the public in the 1940s and it was neat to see coins that had been underground for over 60 years!

After leaving the cave…we went to get ice cream!

We didn’t go just anywhere…we went to Flat Pennies Ice Cream!!

I was in heaven…my two favorite things in one place!  If you haven’t guessed Crystal Cave also had  a squished penny machine as did Flat Pennies Ice Cream so I came home happy!
