Day 8 of a Year Long Road Trip Along America’s Scenic Byways
Cave-in-Rock State Park
We left late today…decided to finish making my blog post while I had internet. Our first stop was in the same park where we camped, Cave-in-Rock State Park. Does anyone want to take a guess at what we saw? Yes, it was a cave – 160 feet deep in a limestone bluff. I was afraid I might miss it as there were stairs everywhere, but obviously that would have been hard to do once I saw its large size. The cave was once a hideout for river pirates after the Revolutionary War. They would lure pioneers into the cave, take their possessions, and sometimes their lives. Fortunately now, it’s just a tour attraction.ON THE ROAD AGAIN!
