Touring the Spectacular Luray Caverns of Virginia

luray1


The stalactites and stalagmites in the underground fantasy world of
Luray Caverns were highlights of our trip to Virginia.
What a thrill to tour this geologic wonderland! 
Very unique - we really were wowed!

There was an eerie, other-worldly, sci-fi feel to the place.
I kept trying to imagine what an astonishing experience 
it must have been for those who discovered it years ago in 1878.

Photos can in no way do justice to the caverns;
they can't begin to convey the scope and depth of the place.
But I did give it a shot, so here is my feeble attempt
to relay the beauty and wonder of Luray Caverns.

Look closely at this photo.
This is Dream Lake with its mirror image of the cavern's ceiling.
Crystal clear amazement!
