It's been over 10 years since I've hiked to the cave and the first time with children of course. It's 3 1/2 miles round trip. The big boys did great! Crew was a good sport about being packed around in the backpack.
The weather was perfect and the leaves a brilliant display of reds and shades of orange. When we made the reservation we knew there was a chance of rain and contemplated cancelling. Luckily we made it to the cave without getting wet. After the 1/4 mile tour through the cave we exited and found a few random raindrops.
Hiking down was fun. We hustled back to the van as the rain picked up into refreshing sprinkles.
We just couldn't pass up the pic of Crew asleep in the backpack:)
