Luray Caverns




We live about 1.5 hours drive from Luray Caverns. We visited there when I first got married, 4 years ago. This weekend was our second visit. We had some friends over from Albany who were staying with us over the long weekend. So, off we went to Luray. I have to say I fell in love with the caves again. The caves are natural not man-made. They are not at all like Ajanta, Allora, Elephenta caves in India which are all man-made.

The caves are well-lit. The structures are breathtaking. And they say, some of the structures are over 7 million years old. And they're still growing. Awesome.

There is one particular place which is the most memorable. Around halfway through, you come to an area where there are hanging structures (that look like icsickes) on the top and there is water underneath. The reflection gives you an illusion of a city underneath. It's breathtaking. Unfortunately, the photos don't come out that well. As R said, some things are only for the eyes. Or for the video camera ;)
