Took a little Ozark trip - Started at Onondaga State Park
Arranged and took a special tour of Onondaga Cave. Got to explore normally closed sections of the cave with the Park Naturalist (Michelle), took my assistant Pat. Sections viewed included the Missouri cavern section and the submarine room. Involved lots of walking!
These are both areas that have been off of the regular tour for decades and they have lots of history in them. You can view the ruins of entrance works for Missouri caverns as you enter Onondaga State Park. We were underneath these ruins on the tour. We also saw three rare cave salamanders in this section of the cave. Also the old boat dock and lots of bats. Lots of fun. I plan on going back, want to explore the lost tour trail of Missouri Caverns that I found.
People should not worry about these old sections of the cave tour because the State has arranged that you see the very BEST of the caves.
April 13, 2013, I have a speaking engagement for the Daughters of the Revolution.
I will be talking about my writing career, my books and adventures.
