Luray Caverns

 

Luray Caverns in Luray, Virginia. The one mile walk through the cavern is amazing when you know it has taken 4,000,000 centuries to make.

Reflecting_Pool
This looks like a big canyon or pool but really is a reflecting pool from the roof reflecting off of about one inch of water.

Luray_SodaStraws
Smaller formations from the ceiling are called Soda Straws.

L_Wishing_Well
And of course you need a wishing well. All the money goes to charity.
