MY World visiting Luray Caverns in Luray Virginia

more My World

The first evening in Luray we walked the small downtown

area and enjoyed how the whole area was decorated
there were several of these displays on the city bridge

we ate here the food was VERY good

we were impressed that folks could leave this stuff outside
there businesses and no one bothered it

We have been to Several caverns in the
US before :Carlsbad in NM is most impressive
and InnerSpace in TX is much smaller
The Luray Caverns hit the middle
between the two we had seen previously

This was so impressive but I could not get a great shot the
water was reflecting the ceiling so it looked as if the growths went up and down

some looked like frosting

they called these bride and groom

some resembled curtains

this is the Ghost that glows and seems to follow you:)

These were at the end --
broken off Stalagmites that were here forever ,
people used to touch them for good luck and
now they ask you not to touch the fried eggs:)

What a fun tour! And a really beautiful place! I've been to Carlsbad and it is spectacular, but your shots are terrific and you can really get a feel for the place! Love the ghost and the "scrambled eggs!!" And the "curtains" are so delicate looking! Thanks for sharing your trip!

Beautiful caverns. You got some great shots. I really like the reflections in the water.

Neat caverns!

I wish I lived in a city where people could leave their decorations out without worrying about destruction or thievery!

What a wonderful time you had. I love caverns. And the town -- lovely decorations for this time of year. Thanks for taking us with you.

I have never been to one and your photos are giving me good ideas of what it is like!
The "fried eggs" look like real fried eggs!

Thank you for the lovely tour!

So fun! I love caverns. So awe inspiring and unique. They can be super slippery, though!
