Cumberland Caverns

This weekend we headed up to Tennessee for a short hiking and caving trip. We left Saturday morning to do a short hike up to Greeter Falls and have a nice picnic lunch before heading over to spend the night at Cumberland Caverns. After checking in to the cavern, the scouts donned helmets, and crawled through a 14″ by 33″ test box to make sure everyone could make it through the caves. We then took 3 hours to traverse 1.5 miles is cave, climbing over and crawling under boulders, and squeezing through some very tight spaces. We ended the night with a walking tour of the upper Caverns, had some dinner, and slept in the complete darkness of the cave.
