Ruby Falls and Cave

Sunday, July 21, 2013
We love this place, Ruby Falls is magical. The history of this place is pretty amazing. If you are claustrophobic this is not your thing. The tour takes an hour. The elevator takes you down 260 feet where a tour guide takes you to the tallest underground water fall in country. People going to and returning from the waterfall made use of the same pathway and this often required the incoming group to stand tight against the cave wall to one side while the outgoing group passed by. As the result, it could become somewhat personal, people often brushed against each other. However, the guide did a great job of keeping us in a joyful mood and the tight squeeze was not of concern.  This was a long walk, but nice to see the inside of an actual cavern.

After descending up to 1000 feet, our group was pass through an underground labyrinth filled with colorful stalactites and stalagmites. We witness underground rivers and rock outcroppings that  amazes us. At the end of our adventure through the rock, my breath takes away by the beauty of Ruby Falls. This is a sight that I will never forget. The waterfall is magnificent, this makes visiting well worth the time.
