Today I visited the Cascade Caverns. After visiting the Carlsbad Caverns, I must admit that it was a bit of a disappointment. That said, if you have never experienced a cavern tour before and if you don't have to travel too far out of your way then the Cascade Caverns would be a good place to start.
The Cascade Caverns are a little run down. The above ground facilities are a mere reflection of what appeared to be better days. As for the caverns themselves, I have to compare them to Carlsbad Caverns and they felt much more cramped (understandably) and the lighting was to direct and bright for good photography. In the Carlsbad Caverns they did a brilliant job of hiding the lights so that their was little or no glare. Additionally, the Cascade Caverns walking path was very wet and uneven. The Carlsbad Caverns walking path was pathed and dry. In fact most of the way you could use a wheel chair which would be impossible at Cascade Caverns.
Tommorow I will be departing Boerne, Texas for Livingston, Texas. Livingston, is as close to what I can technically call home as you can get. You see, though I have never actually been to Livingston, Texas that is where my mailing address is. Back in 2003 when I started this adventure I joined the Escapee's RV Club and am using their mail forwarding service. So even though there is no travel related reason for me to go to Livingston I thought since I was in the area I would go "home."
