Here is another gallery from our recent western wanderings. This gallery comes courtesy of Lewis and Clark Caverns in southern Montana. I live not far from its more-famous cousin, Carlsbad Caverns.
Carlsbad Caverns is an amazing place, and I’ve visited numerous times, including last fall. But I was pleasantly surprised by this little gem, not far from Yellowstone National Park. It was one of the few places we stopped that is neither a national park nor a national monument (though it was once federal land before being sold to the state of Montana), so it doesn’t get the same amount of press. But boy am I glad we stopped and took the tour through the cavern! If you’re ever in the area to visit the other “big-name” national parks, you should spare a day to visit these limestone beauties!
