The day my family and I left for vacation to Branson, Missouri, we stopped on the way to visit Fantastic Caverns in Springfield, Missouri. It's the only cave in North America to offer a complete ride through tour, and it was beautiful. Amyra (my niece) loved it, and pretty much stole the hearts from the couple across from her. Hudson is two, but he did perfectly. I loved how cool the temperature was below, and we had a great view from the jeep drawn tram. The tour took close to an hour, and there is much more to it, but I won't go on and on. So even though my vacation was about 24 hours and then cut short (see post about being heart sick), I do have this as an enjoyable memory. I took this picture from inside the cave.

How awesome! I'm happy you have that awesome photo and great memories. When we were kids, my parents took us to Carlsbad Caverns. We were on a tour and in an elevator going down, down, down when my mother demanded to be taken back up. She felt so closed in. We left her in the main lobby and my father gave us a walking tour of the stalactites and stalagmites. I was so embarrassed at that age by my mother. lol
