In Kentucky, we came upon a National Park
that we had never heard of but that blew our socks off.
Mammoth Cave National Park, located in the state of Kentucky, has the world's
largest network of natural caves and underground passageways, which are
characteristic examples of limestone formations.
This is the longest recorded cave system in the world with more than 360
miles explored and mapped.
We took Cassidy on a
2 mile hike in the cave system.
