April 9, 2006 - Mammoth Cave National Park

The first thing we did in the national park was take a tour of the cave itself.  Here is the orientation before we went below:

It is an interesting and large cave.

There is more to the national park then the cave, we drove every road in it and walked a lot of the trails.  It was early spring in this area:

The redbuds were in bloom:

To cross the Green River in the park you need to take a small ferry:
