Day 3 - Sunday

We again went to sleep with rain all night. Woke up to it being cloudy, and raining in the morning. We drove up to Mercer Caverns today. What an amazing experience for all of us! We learned about all the different formations, the way that the caverns are formed, and how it was discovered. We decended 16 floors down, that's a lot of stairs folks. And then when we were down, we had to come back up! :-) Before we did though, they turned out all of the lights, and we got to see what it would've been like before electricity. The tour guide even had a candle, like what Mr. Mercer had when he first decended back in 1885, then she blew it out. William gripped my hand, but when the lights went back on, the smile on his face was priceless! I was the only one who hit her head on the way back up. Go figure! I got plenty of warning about the low spots too! LOL
