If it's been a while since you've stepped off into a good cave, or even if it hasn't, I would like to introduce you to Cosmic Cavern in Berryville, Arkansas. A good introduction to spelunking with more adventurous options available.

Cosmic Cavern is about a 20-minute drive from Eureka Springs, AR so while my wife and I were on vacation up that-a-way a couple of weeks ago we decided to do the tour. Pretty typical cave with stalactites and stalagmites and soda straws and beautiful flowing sediment formations. It's a" live cavern" which means due to the flow of water from above and below the cavern is still growing and changing all the time, so you try very hard to not touch anything.

The people guiding the tours are very good and it was a fun experience. It was also the first time my wife has been in a cave tour like that, I think she really enjoyed it. I've been on several cavern tours in my life, this was not the best or biggest, but it was good and I enjoyed it thoroughly.

My wife really wants to go do the High Adventure Tour with our Eagle Scout son that they offer after hours. It promises to test your skills, climbing, squeezing through places I can't fit, getting wet and dirty. Y'all have fun with that, I'm too fat.

Cosmic Caverns is two thumbs-up from us!
