We were not sure how to celebrate our 10 years anniversary so we went on a road trip. Minimum plans and preparations, as usual.
The only reservations we had was guided tour to a Kartchner Cavers State Park, located just about an hour away from Tuscon. Their tours are always booked so if you decide to go you should call ahead!
That was an excellent idea. The tour was wonderful, our guide Ed was very knowledgeable and a Big Room cavern was amazing. With all that gorgeous stalactites and stalagmites around you, it feels like you are in a magical rock kingdom where everything is alive and breathing.
I’d like to share a photo with you, guys but you are not allowed to bring a camera in since the caverns are full of microorganisms and stalactites and stalagmites are still growing. My advice: if you get a chance, go! This is a living miracle where many of the formations were growing for tens of thousands of years and the still are! To get to the Big Room you have to go through the several heavy environmental sealed doors which can be opened only by a code they punch in. If I am not mistaken this is the only live cavern in Arizona!
But this story I will save for my next post. Stay tuned :)
