You may have noticed my lack of posts last week, there was a good reason for it. I took a week off from the Farm and Dairy for a long overdue vacation.

Last spring, my best friend asked me if I wanted to take a girls-only trip to Kentucky and Tennessee. Sounds like a good reason to go shopping! However, my friend Sam and I are different in that we look for interesting and out-of-the-box things to do.

I jumped at the chance and we booked our trip. Fast forward a few months and I landed in Mammoth Cave, Kentucky! What a fun time we had! By the way, it was a great place to tune out the world — there was limited Internet and cell phone coverage!

I’ve added a few photos from the trip.

These are some snapshots of stalactites and stalagmites from inside the caves. There are over 300 miles of caves in Mammoth Cave and experts think there are possibly as many as 600 more miles that haven’t been found yet. By the way, stalactites hangs from the ceilings of limestone caves. (They hang tight to the ceiling.) Stalagmites grow from water deposited on the floor of the caves full of limestone. (They might reach the ceiling.)
