Mammoth Cave National Park & the National Corvette Museum

Sunday, July 20, 2008

sunny 32 °C

We drive over to Mammoth Cave National Park. Lots of construction around the visitor center and lots of visitors.

We buy our tickets for our cave tour and then head over to grab some lunch: burgers and fries. Not very good, but they fill us up so that we're ready for our 90 minute cave walk.

We take a bus to the entrance of the cave and start our guided tour.

Interesting tour, but I'm a little tired of touring caves (remember I'm not crazy about closed in spaces).

We walk around the grounds around the visitor center, including the original entrance to the cave, and then head to the Corvette Museum in Bowling Green.

We look at the many Corvettes,

We play their racing game (not very good, but we can't pass up a racing game) and then we arrive at the "Corvette Nursery"

There are several brand new Corvettes waiting to be picked up by their owners. I ANXIOUSLY look to see if one of the Corvettes has my name on it -- My birthday is this week! Here's the one I like:

BUT the Corvette 'babies' are all for
someone else :-(

We head back to the campground for an evening of swimming, relaxation and running a few errands.
