    Default Mammoth Cave

    Any one here ever been to mammoth Cave in Barren County Kentucky? i was just there today. took the six hour tour and went pretty deep. there are fish down there that have Evolved to have no eyes. real creepy looking. and halfway down they decided to do a lights out and turned all lights in the cave OFF talk about dark. like i couldn't see even an inch in front of my face. but anyways best day ever. very glad i wore a diaper down there too as there are no bathrooms and its a three hour hike down and three hour hike up. after that a changed myself then went back in for a diffrent 2 hour tour. that place is amasing wish i could have snapped pics but there was no Flash allowed due to bats. and there was very little light.

    Yea I was there in "68"! I still remember the shutting off of the lights and the guide illuminating the cavern with 1 match after our eyes had become adjusted to the dark.

    the first time i went there we couldnt do it due to the 70+ 8 year old kids (i drive a school bus and took the entire third grade class down there) lights went out for less than a second before the screaming. which is understandable from kids that young. but this time it was just me and my brother. neither me nor him is afraid of the dark but in there is a whole diffrent level of dark and made me uneasy and my bro had a death grip on my hand as he wimpered. we took the six hour hike to the Bottom and got to see some cool but freaky fish, they had no eyes at all after possibly millions of years with no light evolution takes its toll. after that we took lunch at the restaraunt and went back in for the Lantern tour. which is cool once your eyes adjust, its amazing just how much you can see with so little light. we were told the area that has been mapped is 400 miles of tunnles and they say each expidition they find atleast 100 new passages so it can possibly even be another 400 miles of cave down there that no one has ever seen before.

    I was there in the 70's and plan on going back in a year or two. Are you serious about the bathrooms? Hard to imagine a 6 hour tour and no bathrooms. Maybe everybody wears diapers for that one.

    well you gotta think its 400 miles of cave in a national park going over 500 feet under ground plumbing it would be a nightmare and also ruin the caves. any one who needs to go is escorted into a side passage off the trail and told to go there.

    My wife and I spent our Honey moon there. We didn’t have money for a fancy place and she was a geology minor in college. We loved it and have returned many times with our kids.

    Its one of those places everyone should see at least once. I've been a few times over the years.

    Carlsbad is another one. It's been a long time, though. When I went in the mid 70's, they had a self guided tour where the lights turned on just in front of you, and turned off behind you. As it happened I went on a day and time where I was totally alone in there for most of it. The ultimate in creepy.

    Very cool! Did you get to see the old tuberculosis hospital inside the cave?

    I'm actually down by those parts really often, my family owns a pretty big farm that borders Mammoth Cave national park along the Green River. We have a really cool undocumented/unused entrance to a really big cave just upriver of us. Whether or not it's actually part of Mammoth, I have no idea.

    Mammoth cave is huge, but not exactly the most picturesque, there's tons of other smaller caves around the Barren/Glasgow area that so awesome looking they look like something out of a scifi movie. Kentucky apparently has a very karst heavy geology, which means tons of cave formations!
