Default Some Fall Anniversary Shots (56k computer will blow up 70+ pics)

Well yesterday was mine and Sara's 6 year anniversary together! I took the day off and we headed to the mountains around Boone, NC (for you Appalachian State fans). We went to Linville Caverns and Grandfather Mountain. It was a rainy day, but we enjoyed it! (Yes I even took pics of the truck on our anniversary)

Outside of the Caverns:







In the Caverns. The green stuff you see is algae from where they keep the lights on. It would not be there on a daily basis if not for that.

Three different kinds of trout they put in the stream. (they used to be there during the cave's discovery)





The Civil War fireplace:



Broken Stalactites that broke off during a massive flood during the 40s.





crevice:









Below my feet is a pool of water they call the bottomless pool. That's because they have never reached the bottom of it yet. They have dropped a weighted cable down but still have not reached the bottom. Two divers went down and said the walls got to narrow to fit though way down. There is no oxygen in the water because it never moves, therefore no life in it.









Biggest stalactite in the cave. It takes 126 years to grow 1 cubic foot of Limestone:







An adult full grown brown bat hibernating:





Limestone "columns", or where a stalactite meets a stalagmite.







Now here is some phenomenon. This is a SILVERDOLLAR FOSSIL. Yes, in a cave IN THE MOUNTAINS about 500 miles from the beach or more. According to geology, the Appalachian mountains were once under a shallow sea.

Looks like a skeleton:



the fiance and I



Up on Grandfather Mountain:











The Mile High Swinging Bridge. No it is not a mile above the ground, but 1 mile above sea level. It is actually 80 foot above the ground





























When we were leaving, I had a chance to get one of the best pics I have ever taken. There was a rainbow right above the hairpin curves up the mountain:







The giftshop/entrace:



The curves:







My Favorite PIctures:









Sorry for any double pics, not the easiest to post like 70 pics. We had a great day. Took a tank and a quarter of gas and about $200 for the trip between gas, food and admissions to the places, so not so bad!

trip I took:
