Jewel Cave National Monument

"Jewel Cave, where the twin worlds of surface and subterranean collide, a place of mystery and discovery exists. Sights foreign and strange abound, with grandeur cast in stone, beauty found in darkness, and enlightenment in silence." Lydia Poppen - Park Ranger.

Jewel Cave National Monument contains Jewel Cave, currently the third longest cave in the world, with just over 166 miles of mapped passageways. This cave was awesome; so many different colors and rock and mineral formations. Alyssa loved it and was chuffed that the ranger compared a lot of the formations to different types of food: bacon strip, popcorn, caramel etc.
