Yesterday we took a trip to Luray Caverns, very near where we are vacationing. I was a little uppity about "the largest caverns in the Southeast" because I'm from New Mexico, and everyone knows that Carlsbad Caverns are so awesome as to make anything else look like a mousehole. However, at the end of an hour, 1.5 mile trip through Luray Caverns, I'm ready to concede that they are, as advertised, pretty awesome themselves. No bats, though. Carlsbad has tens of thousands of bats. And that's a good thing.
