Penn's Cave

I had the pleasure to take a tour of Penn's Cave in Centre Hall, Pennsylvania. (Sorry not to have a very good photo, my camera doesn't do very well in low light situations.) According to their website, Penn's Cave is America's only all-water cavern. You go through it in a boat and it was so interesting to see all of the stalagmites, stalactites, and flowstone cascades. I wish I had a close up of some of the formations, but hopefully you can get an idea of what it was like.

cela me fait penser a ces vieilles grottes que l'on trouve dans le LOT.
Je te souhaite une bonne et heureuse année 2009.

This reminds me of the old caves that are found in LOT.
I wish you a Happy New Year 2009.

I might add that it is very difficult to take a low-light photo from a moving boat. I think this came out well and illustrates the spaciousness of that large chamber, too.

Did not realize that the caves were open for tours in the winter, and have never been to this specific cave.
