During our honeymoon, we went to Luray Caverns, and visited the New Market battlefield, site of a Civil War battle involving cadets from the Virginia Military Institute. Being from Nebraska, Jeremy had never been inside caverns or visited a Civil War museum.
We couldn't resist the maze at Luray Caverns. It's actually kind of tricky and worth a visit if you are passing through.
Then we hit the caverns.
Hmm, maybe better without the flash?
According to our tour guide, a stalactite "holds tight to the ceiling" while a stalagmite "might hit the ceiling." Maybe I'll pull that out at my next Embassy reception. I suck at small talk.
This is a photo of the underground lake at Luray Caverns, which perfectly reflects the stalactites above it.
Then we went back to the resort, and Jeremy put the stupid crown on again.
On our way back to DC, I introduced Jeremy to another great Shenandoah Valley staple - Waffle House.
Then we stopped at the battlefield. Pretty Virginia.
