Indiana Road Trip Part 2
This is Part 2 of my Indiana Road Trip (View Part 1 Here). In this edition, I will be focused on the caverns we explored.
The two cave we explored are both located near the southern border of Indiana. First on our list was Squire Boone Caverns, followed by Marengo Cave. Both featured amazing rock formations, trails, waterfalls, and plenty of fun facts (or in the case of our tour guide in Marengo Cave: Plenty of great puns!).
Both places were also extremely kind to coordinate private photography tours with our group. This allowed us to take photographs at our own pace and with a tripod. On a standard tour, you typically can't take a tripod which would be problematic in taking quality photos in dark caves.
Possibly my favorite spot of the entire trip was the Lake of Reflection in Marengo Cave. This shallow section of water, mere inches deep, created a perfect mirror reflection of the formations above. It was so pristine that, at a glance, you would be convinced you were looking down into a lower level of the cavern and not at a reflection. The reflection also had a fun way of making it look like the surface of another planet, as the ceiling of the cave was mostly flat with sections of small stalactites.
Please enjoy the photos below of these caverns, and if you have not visited them yet, I highly recommend them! Both also have plenty more to do, including zip lines, shopping, and spelunking tour options.
