Cave Darter

When the temps hit triple digits TSG tends to wilt, so an afternoon at California and Moaning Caverns was our strategy to avoid meltdown. These are California's oldest "show caves", and what they lack in pristine flowstone and draperies, they make up for with funky infrastructure and wise-cracking summertime guides with their well-polished collection of subterranean puns.  Perhaps the most intersting feature to us was the 12-story spiral staircase utilized to reach the floor of the main chamber at Moaning Cavern.

Caves are so "cavey." Good places indeed to avoid the heat for a bit.
