... into the "Big Room"...
... back in the 1940's when my grandparents took my dad and my uncle through here they used to kill all the lights and play "Rock of Ages"
on an organ... but... now with self guided tours that does not happen anymore...
... part of the problem attempting to take photographs in the big rooms of this cave is that the rooms are so huge and vast and go back so far that the
flash does not reach the end of the room while the shutter is still open and so you just get the enclosing darkness... [sigh]...|
... so, if you see a wet spot in the trail it's probably because the ceiling is dripping there, and, if you don't happen to notice the wet spot
in the trail and you stop to look or take a photo and you get dripped on then look down (not up unless you want to see a drip hit you in the eye)
and you will probably see that you are standing over a wet spot... some places the trail is so narrow and the drips so frequent that you will get
dripped on regardless...|
