So easy a caveman could do it

So it’s been a month since I posted last – way too long if you ask me, but I’ve been busy playing and stuff and I’m four so get over it. I will again promise to be better. This week should be better because I’m on vacation and want to keep you posted on what I’ve got going on this week.

Sunday started the beginning of our road trip through the great state of Texas. First stop for us was Natural Bridge Caverns outside of San Antonio. Now, I’ve never been spelunking before so this was an exciting moment for me. I got to go 180 feet below the surface – below the dirt, worms, trees, and rocks. The tour we went on was about 3/4 of a mile – half down hill which means the other half was uphill. I handled it like a champ – so easy a caveman could do it. Although I must admit that there were areas where it was steep and that had me working my legs out a little. Oh, and it was over 70% humidity in there so I was sweaty, too.

All of the sweat and hard work was well worth it to see a cave for the first time. We got to see stalactites (on the ceiling), stalagmites (on the ground), c0lumns (where the two meet), soda straws, and more cool stuff. We couldn’t touch any of them because of the oil in our skin deteriorates the formations. Of course, when they told me I couldn’t touch them, that’s when I wanted to touch them more – I didn’t though.

All in all, it was a great time exploring. Next stop Shamu and Sea World, then off to NASA, and Galveston for a couple of days.
